Within this upload are datasets for the reptile and amphibian assessments, respectively. This data was collated to assess the climate change vulnerability of reptile and amphibians species found in Table Mountain National Park.

Each of these datasets contains the following tabs of information:

Trait criteria: The species traits for which data was collated, variables used to score each trait, and the vulnerability thresholds assigned to each trait. Expert weighting refers to the degree of relative importance a trait has on the sensitivity or adaptive capacity of a species when considered independently from the other traits.

Data: Each of the species examined for each respective assessment, life history information for each trait and species, and sources for such information.

References: The full reference for each life history data source.
