VU
White-breasted Guineafowl Agelastes meleagrides


AUC: 0.9502, O:88.4, R:286

The above map shows the simulated distribution for the (Agelastes meleagrides) for 2055 based on projected future climate change. The map is generated by relating the species current range to current climate and then projecting this relationship onto future climate simulations. This projected future range is based on climate simulations produced by the hadley center (HADCM3 model using the B2a scenario of future greenhouse gas emissions).

See Hole et al. 2009 for further information.
