Shifts in climatic realised niches of Iberian species

Climate change has strong effects on biodiversity. It causes shifts in the species’ geographical range, towards other latitudes or elevations, while tracking its natural habitat. Here, the species maintains its realised niche stable (in the environmental space) and shifts its geographical range. Alternatively, a species might shift its realised niche through its fundamental niche, maintaining its geographical range stable, when tracking its natural habitat is not possible.  Leer más.
