Chaparral Landscape Conversion in Southern California
consbio.org/products/publications/chaparral-landscape-conversion-southern-california
...southern California have long been occupied and modified by humans, but the magnitude and extent of human impact has dramatically increased since the early 1900s. As population growth started to boom in the 1940s, the primary form of habitat conversion transitioned from agriculture to urban and residential development. Now, urban growth is the primary contributor, directly...

...Southern California" in Natural Disasters and Adaptation to Climate Change Introduction Although many residents of southern California have long recognised that wildfires in the region are an ongoing, constant risk to lives and property, the enormity of the regional fire hazard caught the world’s attention during the southern California firestorms of 2003 (Figure 5...
 
Climate change effects on southern California deserts
consbio.org/products/publications/climate-change-effects-southern-california-deserts
...southern California where regional increases in temperature and vegetation shifts have been observed. While all the CMIP5 temperature projections agree on a substantial level of warming throughout the year, there is fair bit of divergence in the magnitude and seasonality of projected changes in rainfall. While desert plants and animals are generally adapted to extreme cond...

...southern California (San Diego, Riverside, Imperial, and Orange counties) and Baja California, with an emphasis on San Diego County. We compiled information on the status of pigs in these areas from the literature and interviews with numerous individuals knowledgeable about feral pig populations, including a population recently introduced into San Diego County. We also rev...

Shrinking windows of opportunity for oak seedling establishment in southern California mountains
consbio.org/products/publications/opportunity-oak-seedling-establishment
...southern Sierra Nevada and western Tehachapi Mountains of southern California with spatially downscaled grids of modeled water-year climatic water deficit (CWDwy) and mean August maximum daily temperature (Tmax) to map historical and projected future microclimates suitable for establishment windows of opportunity for Quercus douglasii, a dominant tree species of warm, dry ...
 
Comparing the role of fuel breaks across southern California national forests
consbio.org/products/publications/comparing-role-fuel-breaks-across-southern-california-national-forests
...southern California national forests to better understand which factors are consistently important for fuel breaks in the control of large fires. We also explored which landscape features influence where fires and fuel breaks are most likely to intersect. The relative importance of significant factors explaining fuel break outcome and number of fire and fuel break intersec...
 
Species' traits affect the performance of species' distribution models for plants in southern California
consbio.org/products/publications/species-traits-affect-the-performance-of-species-distribution-models-for-plants-in-southern-california
...California southwest ecoregion, USA. Methods: We developed species distribution models (SDMs) for 45 plant species using three primary modeling methods (GLMs, GAMs, and Random Forests). Using AUC as a performance measure of prediction accuracy, and measure of the strength of species–environment correlations, we used regression analyses to compare the effects of...
