Bay et al. (Reports, 5 January 2018, p. 83) combine genomics, spatial modeling, and future climate scenarios to examine yellow warbler population trends in response to climate change, and they suggest that their methods can inform conservation. We discuss problems in their statistical analyses and explain why the concept of “genomic vulnerability” needs further validation before application to real-world conservation problems.
