Abundance and occupancy of populations at high- and low-latitude geographic range edges will be critically important in determining a species' response to climate change. Low abundance and occupancy at expanding (high latitude) edges of the range may limit a species capacity to migrate, and at trailing (low latitude) edges, may result in range erosion and regional extinction. We examined abundance-occupancy distributions across the geographic ranges of 102 eastern North American trees and… CONTINUE READING
