Summary

This section is intended to synthesize the future scenarios and stressors analyses and discuss the future viability of PCC. As discussed, the limited demographic data and our lack of knowledge about how populations respond to stressors may hinder our ability to evaluate changes in PCC populations over time and to predict the species’ response to various stressors over the 50 year time frame. However, the recent genetic work coupled with historical and recent survey work allowed us to make inferences about the species’ resilience, redundancy, and representation.
