Predicting species distribution: offering more than simple habitat models
In the last two decades, interest in species distribution models (SDMs) of plants and animals has grown dramatically. Recent advances in SDMs allow us to potentially forecast anthropogenic effects on… Expand
BIOMOD – a platform for ensemble forecasting of species distributions
BIOMOD is a computer platform for ensemble forecasting of species distributions, enabling the treatment of a range of methodological uncertainties in models and the examination of species-environment… Expand
Validation of species-climate impact models under climate change
Increasing concern over the implications of climate change for biodiversity has led to the use of species–climate envelope models to project species extinction risk under climatechange scenarios.… Expand
Measuring ecological niche overlap from occurrence and spatial environmental data
Aim Concerns over how global change will influence species distributions, in conjunction with increased emphasis on understanding niche dynamics in evolutionary and community contexts, highlight the… Expand

Many studies in recent years have investigated the effects of climate change on the future of biodiversity. In this review, we first examine the different possible effects of climate change that can… Expand
BIOMOD – optimizing predictions of species distributions and projecting potential future shifts under global change
- W. Thuiller
- 1 October 2003
A new computation framework (BIOMOD: BIOdiversity MODelling) is presented, which aims to maximize the predictive accuracy of current species distributions and the reliability of future potential… Expand
Evaluation of consensus methods in predictive species distribution modelling
Aim Spatial modelling techniques are increasingly used in species distribution modelling. However, the implemented techniques differ in their modelling performance, and some consensus methods are… Expand
Selecting pseudo-absences for species distribution models: how, where and how many?
Summary 1. Species distribution models are increasingly used to address questions in conservation biology, ecology and evolution. The most effective species distribution models require data on both… Expand
Methods and uncertainties in bioclimatic envelope modelling under climate change
Potential impacts of projected climate change on biodiversity are often assessed using single-species bioclimatic ‘envelope’models. Such models are a special case of species distribution models in… Expand
