Golden-headed lion tamarins at risk of climate change: A case study within the framework of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) for Global Biodiversity

Goal: This research project aims to predict the potential shifts in the distribution of the endangered Golden-headed lion tamarin (Leontopithecus chrysomelas) in the Atlantic forests of Brazil, by modelling the species’ climatological suitability under scenarios of future climate change. Through this case study within the framework of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) for Global Biodiversity, we test climate data provided by this new operational climate service and evaluate its usefulness. The obtained information is critical to further improve the species’ conservation action plans and guide future management decisions.
