ContextSpecies are expected to shift their distributions in response to global environmental changes and additional protected areas are needed to encompass the corresponding changes in the distributions of their habitats. Conservation policies are likely to become obsolete unless they integrate the potential impacts of climate and land-use change on biodiversity.ObjectivesWe identify conservation priority areas for current and future projected distributions of Iberian bird species. We then… 
Climate and land-use change refugia for Brazilian Cerrado birds
Hoping the best, expecting the worst: forecasting the potential impacts of climate and land-use change on Iberian plants of conservation concern
ABSTRACT Background: Worldwide, halting biodiversity loss is still a major challenge. Climate and land-use change (CLUC) are major drivers of species decline, and further expected to drive species’
Conservation planning following reclamation of intertidal areas throughout the Yellow and Bohai Seas, China
Tidal flats throughout the Yellow and Bohai Seas provide essential habitat for migrating shorebirds along the East Asian-Australasian Flyway. Land reclamation threatens this habitat. Using
Searching for Networks: Ecological Connectivity for Amphibians Under Climate Change
A general pattern of low-conductance areas in landscape surface, yet with some well-connected patches suggesting potential ecological corridors is revealed, which highlights the importance of maintaining forest remnants in the southern Bahia region by drafting a blueprint for functional biodiversity corridors.
Climatic variables and ecological modelling data for birds, amphibians and reptiles in the Transboundary Biosphere Reserve of Meseta Ibérica (Portugal-Spain)
A complete dataset of state-of-the-art historical and future climate model simulations, generated by global-regional climate model chains, with climatic variables resolved at a high spatial resolution over the Transboundary Biosphere Reserve of Meseta Ibérica is provided.
Effects of future climate change on the geographical distribution of a bird endemic to South American floodplains
Future climate change poses an immediate threat to biodiversity. Species are shifting their geographic distribution in direct response to climate change. Species around the globe are expected to
Back home? Uncertainties for returning seized animals to the source‐areas under climate change
The results suggest that population restoration programs for seized species need to be rethought, and furthermore other suitable areas could be considered for truly ensuring the survival and maintenance of overexploited populations in the long-term.


Risk assessment for Iberian birds under global change
Climate change threatens European conservation areas
The effectiveness of protected areas and the Natura 2000 network in conserving a large proportion of European plant and terrestrial vertebrate species under climate change is assessed and the risk is high that ongoing efforts to conserve Europe's biodiversity are jeopardized by climate change.
Protected area needs in a changing climate
Range shifts due to climate change may cause species to move out of protected areas. Climate change could therefore result in species range dynamics that reduce the relevance of current fixed
Planning for Climate Change: Identifying Minimum-Dispersal Corridors for the Cape Proteaceae
Abstract:  Climate change poses a challenge to the conventional approach to biodiversity conservation, which relies on fixed protected areas, because the changing climate is expected to shift the
Optimizing resiliency of reserve networks to climate change: multispecies conservation planning in the Pacific Northwest, USA
The effectiveness of a system of reserves may be compromised under climate change as species' habitat shifts to nonreserved areas, a problem that may be compounded when well‐studied vertebrate
Climate change, species range shifts and dispersal corridors: an evaluation of spatial conservation models
The notion that conservation areas are static geographical units for biodiversity conservation should be revised when planning for climate‐change adaptation. Since species are expected to respond to
Projected impacts of climate change on a continent-wide protected area network.
Using modelled projected shifts in the distributions of sub-Saharan Africa's entire breeding avifauna, it is demonstrated that rigorously defined networks of protected areas can play a key role in mitigating the worst impacts of climate change on biodiversity.
A Review of Climate‐Change Adaptation Strategies for Wildlife Management and Biodiversity Conservation
Although natural resource managers already have many tools that can be used to address climate-change effects, managers will likely need to apply these tools in novel and innovative ways to meet the unprecedented challenges posed by climate change.
The effectiveness of Iberian protected areas in conserving terrestrial biodiversity.
The results support the view that current SCI can be used for prioritization of areas for conservation, but a systematic reevaluation of conservation priorities in Spain and Portugal would be necessary to ensure that effective conservation of one of European's most important biodiversity regions is achieved.
Estimating the global conservation status of more than 15,000 Amazonian tree species
A gap analysis suggests that existing Amazonian protected areas and indigenous territories will protect viable populations of most threatened species if these areas suffer no further degradation, highlighting the key roles that protected areas, indigenous peoples, and improved governance can play in preventing large-scale extinctions in the tropics in this century.
