Biodiversity is facing severe anthropogenic threats, including potentially dramatic climate change-induced contractions and shifts of species geographic ranges. The potential impact of climate change on species distribution has thus become a critical focus for conservation science: how will climate change further affect threatened species? Will the reserve network be efficient under climate change? What could be the potential effect of climate change on biodiversity (species richness, functional and phylogenetic diversity)? Improved approaches to modeling species distributions and climate have led to significant advances in our understanding of potential species distribution changes. In my talk I will present results from my recent work that aimed at answering the above conservation.
