Conservation Biology Institute
Bridging conservation science and practice
CBI is working with Utah’s Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) and The Bureau of Land Management to develop decision support models to inform current conservation initiatives in Utah and throughout the Colorado Plateau ecoregion.
This project integrates three different types of climate change modeling results - climate variables from the latest climate modeling, MC2 vegetation, and soil vulnerability data- with the existing protected areas datasets.
CBI will build the CACPD for Western North America powered by Data Basin in partnership with project Scientists Carlos Carroll, Josh Lawler and Scott Nielsen. CACPD will provide a planning framework for climate adaptation conservation.
