What about going extinct due to habitat loss? That is often more extreme than climate change, which of course is pretty speculative as to its specific effects.
For rapid assessment, wouldn’t habitat loss be at least equally bad? We seem to know a lot more about habitat specificity than possible results of climate change. Just wondering,

Subject: [Odonata-l] odonate sensitivity
My lab members and I are trying to develop a sensitivity metric for Mexican odonates for rapid assessment practices. This metric must be a very straightforward variable that can be also integrated to further analyses of effects of environmental change on odonate presence and survival. One of the practical ideas is to use such metric to assess conservation status of aquatic environments in Mexico.
To a large extent, we have to rely on the opinion of experts and this is why I am contacting you. Thus, I am attaching an excel table where I ask you to fill in what you think is the best value (1-3) for such sensitivity for each species. The table includes an explanation of the different values of the metric and what you are supposed to understand for this. If you don't know a particular species, just leave it blank. If you have comments, please send them to me directly. Your help and feedback will be much appreciated !!!
Thanks ever so much !!!
