Abstract

Gulf Coast Plains and Ozark Highland Landscape Conservation Consortium  landscapes are expected to change as a result of climate change and urban growth, arguably two of the most influencing factors. Global Climate Models of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 have predicted 5-7\textdegreeC of temperature increases and varied precipitation under the most severe Representative Concentration Pathway 8.5 scenarios These predictions exhibited strong spatial and seasonal variations
