Genetic Diversity and Climate Exposure
This figure appears in chapter 7 of the Impacts, Risks, and Adaptation in the United States: The Fourth National Climate Assessment, Volume II report.
Genetic diversity is the fundamental basis of adaptive capacity. Throughout the Pacific Northwest, (a) bull trout genetic diversity is lowest in the same areas where (b) climate exposure is highest; in this case, climate exposure is a combination of maximum temperature and winter flood risk. Sub-regions within the broader Columbia River Basin (shaded gray) represent different watersheds used in the vulnerability analysis. Values are ranked by threat, such that the low genetic diversity and high climate exposure are both considered “high” threats (indicated as red in the color gradient).
