rSDM: Species Distribution Modelling in R

Asymmetry in marginal population performance foreshadows widespread species range shifts

While current climate change is altering the distribution of species worldwide1, a poor understanding of the mechanisms involved limits our ability to predict future range dynamics. Range shifts are expected to occur when populations at one range …

Cracking the code of biodiversity responses to past climate change

How individual species and entire ecosystems will respond to future climate change are among the most pressing questions facing ecologists. Past biodiversity dynamics recorded in the paleoecological archives show a broad array of responses, yet …

Modelling species range dynamics

New approaches to hindcast and forecast species range dynamics.

Niche shifts after long-distance dispersal events in bipolar sedges (Carex, Cyperaceae)

Bipolar species represent the greatest biogeographical disjunction on Earth, raising many questions about the colonization and adaptive processes behind such striking distribution. We investigated climatic niche differences of five Carex bipolar …

Species range dynamics under changing climates: from proxy evidence to Bayesian synthesis

Investigating biodiversity responses to climate change: the benefits of hindsight (and a little bit of statistics)

Climate refugia: joint inference from fossil records, species distribution models and phylogeography

Climate refugia, locations where taxa survive periods of regionally adverse climate, are thought to be critical for maintaining biodiversity through the glacial–interglacial climate changes of the Quaternary. A critical research need is to better …
