Final reports and products include A Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment for Focal Resources of the Sierra Nevada, which describes the vulnerability assessment methods used and summarizes the findings for twenty-three ecosystems and species of the region, and Climate Change Adaptation Strategies for Focal Resources of the Sierra Nevada, which details adaptation strategies and actions for a smaller subset of focal resources. Two additional vulnerability assessment products, vulnerability briefings and vulnerability technical syntheses, have also been released.
