Ecological parameter: climate change vulnerability score (CCVS)
Parameter group: climate change related parameter
The "climate change vulnerability score" (CCVS) is an aggregation of six autecological traits that are known to be associated with vulnerability to climate change: endemism, micro-endemism, temperature preference, altitudinal preference, stream zonation preference and life history. The score ranges between 0 (invulnerable) and 6 (highly vulnerable).
