Predicting distributions of invasive species

  title={Predicting distributions of invasive species},
  author={Jane Elith},
This chapter aims to inform a practitioner about current methods for predicting potential distributions of invasive species. It mostly addresses single species models, covering the conceptual bases, touching on mechanistic models, and then focusing on methods using species distribution records and environmental data to predict distributions. The commentary in this last section is oriented towards key issues that arise in fitting, and predicting with, these models (which include CLIMEX, MaxEnt… CONTINUE READING
