Data from: Global change on the Roof of the World: vulnerability of Himalayan otter species to land-use and climate alterations

Mirko Di Febbraro, Pushpinder Jamwal, Maria Laura Carranza, Melissa Savage & Anna Loy
Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment (CCVA) prescribes the quantification of species vulnerability based on three components: sensitivity, adaptive capacity and exposure. Such assessments should be performed through combined approaches that integrate trait-based elements (e.g., measures of species sensitivity such as niche width) with correlative tools quantifying exposure (magnitude of changes in climate within species habitat). Furthermore, as land-use alterations may increase climate impacts on biodiversity, CCVAs should focus on both climate and land-use change effects. Unfortunately,...

Spatial conservation prioritization for the Amur tiger in Northeast China

Zexu Long, Jiayin Gu, Guangshun Jiang, Marcel Holyoak, Guiming Wang, Heng Bao, Peiqi Liu, Minghai Zhang & Jianzhang Ma
Amur tiger (Panthera tigris altaica) is critically endangered and also the subspecies of the tiger with the most restoration potential in China. It is challenging to protect large-ranging carnivores like tigers under increasing pressure of human development. To provide a more technically robust foundation for tiger habitat conservation prioritization, we conducted a comprehensively empirical analysis based on a broadly collected occurrence dataset of tigers and their prey. We modeled tiger distribution by running an ensemble...
