Abstract

With the increasing anthropogenization of the world, spatial approach to conservation planning become increasingly needed. In the last two decades, species distribution models (SDMs) have become central tools to generalize information on the distributions of community, biodiversity, ecosystems and their services in time and space. As such, they not only represent the major source of projections for major biodiversity assessments, but additionally bear a high potential for supporting spatial conservation prioritization and landscape planning. Here, I will review recent advances and ways forward in SDM science, and illustrate some promising use of SDMs for spatial conservation planning in anthropogenized mountain landscapes.

BD-Seminars

The Biodiversity Seminar Series (BD-Seminars) are organized by the WSL Biodiversity Center. Every two weeks, we aim to host a seminar speaker that presents research or outreach on topics relevant to the biodiversity community at WSL. The seminars are public and are usually broadcasted online.
