Data from: Stepping inside the niche: microclimate data are critical for accurate assessment of species’ vulnerability to climate change

Collin Storlie, Andres Merino-Viteri, Benjamin Phillips, Jeremy VanDerWal, Justin Welbergen & Stephen Williams
To assess a species' vulnerability to climate change, we commonly use mapped environmental data that are coarsely resolved in time and space. Coarsely resolved temperature data are typically inaccurate at predicting temperatures in microhabitats used by an organism and may also exhibit spatial bias in topographically complex areas. One consequence of these inaccuracies is that coarsely resolved layers may predict thermal regimes at a site that exceed species' known thermal limits. In this study, we...
