TACCIMO Tool's Scientific Literature Database Reaches 3,000 Climate Change Quotes
The web-based Template for Assessing Climate Change Impacts and Management Options (TACCIMO), which connects climate change science with natural resource management, has reached a milestone. TACCIMO's scientific literature database now contains 3,000 unique quotations describing the effects of climate change supported by almost 800 adaptive management options to support land owners, managers, and planners in decision making. In addition to this expanded peer-reviewed content, TACCIMO features new and improved case studies to demonstrate use of the tool. Examples include science assessments for Forest Service land and management planning as well as other federal, state, and private forest and natural resource management uses. TACCIMO's development is a collaborative effort among the Forest Service's Eastern and Western Environmental Threat Assessment Centers, National Forest System, and State and Private Forestry.
