Rare plant species are the most vulnerable components of vegetation cover under climate change. The aim of this paper was to model the influence of climatic changes on the habitat suitability for Linaria uralensis Kotov in the Southern Urals. The MaxEnt program was used for modeling. Climate variabl…

Climate change poses a risk for rare plant species distribution in the future. The aim of this study was to predict the impact of moderate climate change on the growth and distribution of the rare endemic steppe species Artemisia salsoloides Willd. with the use of the maximum entropy method (MaxEnt)…

Pterocarpus marsupium Roxb., a significant deciduous tree species of high medicinal value is depleting fast due to various biotic and abiotic factors and is included in the near threatened species category of IUCN red list. The potential distribution range of P. marsupium for India was modeled for t…

Pterocarya fraxinifolia, native to the southern Caucasus and adjacent areas, has been widely introduced in Europe. In this study, we investigate the following: (1) How did its current distribution form? (2) What are the past, current, and future suitable habitats of P. fraxinifolia? (3) What is the …

Knowing how and to what extent environmental parameters affect threatened species facilitates the understanding of their specific microhabitat requirements. In this study, we examined the response patterns of four threatened tropical plant species to variations in temperature, precipitation, and phy…

A new southernmost record of Thismia panamensis (Standl.) Jonker in Brazil extends the occurrence of this species to the Atlantic Rainforest. This species was found in Parque Estadual Serra da Baitaca, in Paraná state, where other new records of mycoheterotrophic plants have recently been mad…

Climate change is projected to have significant effects on the distribution of species globally, but research into the implications in parts of Africa has been limited. Using species distribution modelling, this study models climate change-related risks to the terrestrial biodiversity (birds, mammal…

Small carnivores are of increasing conservation concern globally, including those formerly thought to be widespread and abundant. Three weasel species (Mustela nivalis, M. frenata, and M. erminea) are distributed across most of North America, yet several recent studies have reported difficulty detec…

The garden dormouse Eliomys quercinus has been declining in both abundance and range since the mid-twentieth century. The eastern edge of its range has contracted from the Ural Mountains to eastern Germany. Habitat loss and fragmentation has been the most supported theory to explain the observed dec…

Climate change impacts are important in shaping large ecotones, such as the transition zone between the Cerrado and Amazon rainforest (CAT) biogeographical domains. The accelerating rate of conversion of native vegetation, the most important factor for biodiversity loss in the Anthropocene, compound…
