White-winged Apalis Apalis chariessa

AUC: 0.7884, O:0, R:33.3

The above map shows the simulated distribution for the (Apalis chariessa) for 2085 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 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.
