System for Assessing Vulnerability of Species (SAVS)

Wildlife managers can use this tool to rank species vulnerability to future climate change.

This tool was developed to quantify the relative impact of expected climate change effects for terrestrial vertebrate species. The SAVS uses 22 criteria related to expected response or vulnerability of species in a questionnaire to provide a framework for assessing vulnerability to climate change. The questionnaire is completed using information gathered from published materials, personal knowledge, or expert consultation. Scores generated can be used to inform management planning.
