Climate Change Discussion using TACCIMO and other tools at Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve

Hi Everyone,

   If you haven’t had a chance to check out TACCIMO yet, it’s definitely worth a look.  I used it this week to prepare a presentation to NPS staff at Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve (a unit in the National Park Service).  In no time at all I went to the web page and prepared a quick report that told me about temperature and precipitation projections for three different input emission scenarios (low, medium, and high) and three different climate models.  It also…

Update on SALCC Connectivity Modeling Project

This has been a busy year for Wildlands Network and our collaborators at Clemson University (Rob Baldwin and his student Paul Leonard) as we have gotten the South Atlantic LCC Connectivity Analysis off to a strong start! We began the project by working to identify an initial set of target species to focus the connectivity research on for the SALCC region, eventually settling on: black bear, red wolf, eastern cougar/Florida panther, eastern diamondback…

Solar Irradiation for Aquatic Habitats in North Carolina

Part of understanding habitat conditions on a landscape involves looking at basic inputs.  For aquatic habitats, the amount of sunlight is known to have effect on the community.  The amount of sunlight that reaches a water body in a day depends on the orientation of the stream, the…

Estimating Global “Blue Carbon” Emissions from Conversion and Degradation of Vegetated Coastal Ecosystems


Recent attention has focused on the high rates of annual carbon sequestration in vegetated coastal ecosystems—marshes, mangroves, and seagrasses—that may be lost with habitat destruction (‘conversion’). Relatively unappreciated, however, is that conversion of these coastal ecosystems also impacts very large pools of previously-sequestered carbon. Residing mostly in sediments, this ‘blue carbon’ can be released to the atmosphere when these ecosystems are converted or degraded.…
