Climate change may have noticeable impacts on global biodiversity and can be considered as a huge long-term threat to species survival. To assess the extinction risk of wildlife species and in spatial planning approaches for conservation strategies, it is essential to predict how species respond to climate changes via shift in geographic range. The prediction of species responses to climate change can be done using alternative modeling approaches. This paper provides an overview of five climate-envelope models and their relative benefit to climate change studies.
Key words: Climate changes, biodiversity, modeling approaches, climate-envelope models, geographical range.
