Abstract Models used to predict species’ potential distributions have been described as either correlative or mechanistic. We attempted to determine whether correlative models could perform as well as mechanistic models for predicting species potential distributions, using a case study. We compared potential distribution predictions made for a coastal dune plant ( Scaevola plumieri ) along the coast of South Africa, using a mechanistic model based on summer water balance (SWB), and two… CONTINUE READING
