Scenario-based assessment of future land use change on butterfly species distributions

  title={Scenario-based assessment of future land use change on butterfly species distributions},
  author={Michael L{\"u}tolf and Janine Bolliger and Felix Kienast and Antoine Guisan},
  journal={Biodiversity and Conservation},
Species distribution models (SDMs) are increasingly used to predict environmentally induced range shifts of habitats of plant and animal species. Consequently SDMs are valuable tools for scientifically based conservation decisions. The aims of this paper are (1) to identify important drivers of butterfly species persistence or extinction, and (2) to analyse the responses of endangered butterfly species of dry grasslands and wetlands to likely future landscape changes in Switzerland.
