The above map shows the simulated distribution for the (Sternula saundersi) for the present based on recent observed climate change. The map is generated by relating the species current range to current climate simulations.
See Hole et al. 2009 for further information.
The modelling and mapping work presented here was undertaken at Durham University with funding from RSPB and using bird range data provided by the Zoological Museum, University of Copenhagen. The MacArthur Foundation funded the production of these maps on this web-page. Anyone wishing to use these maps for any purpose should contact Dr Stephen G. Willis in the School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences at Durham University.
