A guide for natural resource managers

Published in 2016 by Macquarie University, this Guide represents a first attempt at compiling online tools available to assist natural resource managers incorporate the inherent uncertainties associated with climate change when planning revegetation activities.

The Guide can be accessed by downloading the PDF version or viewing online at http://anpc.asn.au/resources/climate_ready_revegetation.

The information in the Guide is based on the premise that survival and resilience will be enhanced for species and local populations with large, genetically diverse populations. Species differ in their vulnerability to climate change. Species that cannot evolve and adapt to new environmental conditions in-situ as fast as the climate changes, or disperse to more suitable climes, will be more vulnerable than those with the evolutionary potential and/or the capacity to disperse.

The Guide provides step-by-step instructions on where to find and how to use climate projections and how to consider the suitability of species and provenances for revegetation projects.
