      [The Atlantic Cities]

      One group that�s been keeping a close eye on climate change is wine
      growers. Since a 2006 study predicted global warming could fry over 80
      percent of the US�s wine grapes, vintners have been planning new
      heat-resistant varietals, adopting big-data-driven water saving techniques,
      and mapping out what could become the new Napa Valleys of a warming world.

      That last trend is the focus of a new study out today that examines how
      shifting wine cultivation geography could have implications for endangered
      species. Lee Hannah, an ecologist at Conservational International, used a
      suite of global climate models to plot where ideal wine conditions will
      migrate to as temperatures warm and precipitation patterns fluctuate.

      �In a lot of these places, what�s there now is good wildlife habitat,�
      Hannah said.
