Environmental niche models utilize associations between environmental variables and known species distributions to define abiotic conditions within which populations can be maintained. Projection of modelled niches into new regions and under scenarios of future climate change enables the geographical distribution of suitable conditions to be predicted. This approach has been widely applied, including in studies investigating the potential impacts of climate change Department of Herpetology and… CONTINUE READING
