The above map shows the simulated distribution for the (Hirundo smithii) for the present based on recent observed climate change. The map is generated by relating the species current range to current climate simulations.
See the methodology linked below for further details on the methods used for simulating the potential future range changes.
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.
