DescriptionContext Besides climate change vulnerability, most ecosystems are under threat from a history of improper land-use and conservation policies, yet there is little existing long-term ecological research infrastructure in Turkey. In regions with no ecological networks across large landscapes, ecoregion concept offers opportunities for characterizing the landscape under changing climate. Objectives Aim is to develop contemporary and future quantitative ecoregions for Turkey based on climate model outputs, to identify climate changesensitive areas of biodiversity and conservation significance, and to provide a framework for a comprehensive ecological observatory network design
