Poster: The floor is lava – Mapping mammal exposure to extreme drought and warm spells

Fellow Carmen Soria presented an e-poster entitled The floor is lava: Mapping mammal exposure to extreme drought and warm spells? at the Student Conference on Conservation Science, an hybrid event that took place in March 2022, at Cambridge.

The frequency and intensity of extreme climate events is increasing due to climate change. This will negatively impact many animal populations, increasing their extinction risk. Within extreme events, droughts and warm spells will probably affect the ability of homeotherms to thermoregulate. In this project, we have derived maps of future global terrestrial mammal exposure to both events in two different periods (2021 – 2020 and 2081 – 2100) and two emission scenarios (RCP 2.6 and RCP 8.5). We found that the percentage of range exposed increased with period and emission scenario.
