Dataset was scientifically peer reviewed
The dataset contains 3 maps that show the current and predicted range of Western Redcedar (Thuja plicata) in the Pacific Northwest region. The layers include: 1) the species range modeled under current climate conditions for 1950-75 2) a continuous model of the predicted range for 1950-2006 and 3) potential range expansion and contraction from 2000-2009.
