Abstract

This report describes an assessment of the climate change vulnerability of priority species and habitats for the Nooksack Indian Tribe. In addition to describing our approach and resulting sensitivity scores and vulnerability rankings, we provide an appendix of fact sheets for each of the assessed species and habitat types, highlighting their overall climate vulnerability and primary climate sensitivities . These estimates of climate vulnerability, underlying climate sensitivities, and key information gaps will help lay the foundation for the Tribe’s future climate adaptation and research efforts.
