Qualitative vulnerability calculations for 25 desert amphibian and reptile species using NatureServe's Climate Change Vulnerability Index version 3.0. Analyses are done across 4 spatial scales and three climate scenarios. We used four types of spatial data, including point data, minimum convex polygons based on the point data, range data clipped to the desert region, and range data clipped to the contiguous United States. We used climate data from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) 5 for Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP) 2.6, 6.0, and 8.5. Each file is a species x spatial data x climate data model.
