The art of modelling range-shifting species
Summary 1. Species are shifting their ranges at an unprecedented rate through human transportation and environmental change. Correlative species distribution models (SDMs) are frequently applied forExpand

Mechanistic niche modelling: combining physiological and spatial data to predict species' ranges.
Species distribution models (SDMs) use spatial environmental data to make inferences on species' range limits and habitat suitability. Conceptually, these models aim to determine and map componentsExpand

Predicting organismal vulnerability to climate warming: roles of behaviour, physiology and adaptation
A recently developed integrative framework proposes that the vulnerability of a species to environmental change depends on the species' exposure and sensitivity to environmental change, itsExpand

The potential for behavioral thermoregulation to buffer “cold-blooded” animals against climate warming
Increasing concern about the impacts of global warming on biodiversity has stimulated extensive discussion, but methods to translate broad-scale shifts in climate into direct impacts on livingExpand

Declining body size: a third universal response to warming?
A recently documented correlate of anthropogenic climate change involves reductions in body size, the nature and scale of the pattern leading to suggestions of a third universal response to climateExpand

Thermal-safety margins and the necessity of thermoregulatory behavior across latitude and elevation
Significance We find that most terrestrial ectotherms are insufficiently tolerant of high temperatures to survive the warmest potential body temperatures in exposed habitats and must thereforeExpand

Predicting species distributions for conservation decisions
TLDR
We encourage species distribution modellers to get involved in real decision-making processes that will benefit from their technical input; this strategy has the potential to better bridge theory and practice, and contribute to improve both scientific knowledge and conservation outcomes. Expand

Correlation and process in species distribution models: bridging a dichotomy
Within the field of species distribution modelling an apparent dichotomy exists between process-based and correlative approaches, where the processes are explicit in the former and implicit in theExpand

Habitat, environment and niche: what are we modelling?
The terms 'habitat', 'environment' and 'niche' are used inconsistently, and with some confusion, within the ecological literature on species distribution and abundance modelling. Here I suggestExpand

Parthenogenetic organisms are all female and reproduce clonally. The transition from sex to parthenogenesis is frequently associated with a major change in geographical distribution, often biasingExpand
