Aim Climate change assessments are largely based on correlative species distribution models (SDMs) that are sensible to spatial biases or incompleteness of input distribution data. We tested whether changes on the species' climatic niche resulting from recent human-induced range contractions have a significant influence on SDM predictions of future species distributions. Location Africa. Methods For this study, we selected two highly detectable species with acknowledged human-induced… Expand
