eResearch Our Research Wallace Initiative

Wallace Initiative

The Wallace Initiative is an innovative, coordinated, technological approach to smart conservation.

The eResearch Centre has partnered with the World Wildlife Foundation (WWF), the Tyndall Centre and the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility (NCCARF) to develop the Wallace Initiative as a simple web-based platform for investigating which regions, species and crops are likely to be the most and least affected by future climate change.

Information from approximately 350,000 data sets is displayed geographically as an overlay on Google Maps, and is also available for download from the site for users wishing to run their own species bioclimatic models with their own data.
