Historical climate modelling predicts patterns of current biodiversity in the Brazilian Atlantic forest

Carnaval, Ana Carolina; Moritz, Craig


Aim: We aim to propose validated, spatially explicit hypotheses for the late Quaternary distribution of the Brazilian Atlantic forest, and thereby provide a framework for integrating analyses of species and genetic diversity in the region. Location: The Atlantic forest, stretching along the Brazilian coast. Methods: We model the spatial range of the forest under three climatic scenarios (current climate, 6000 and 21,000 years ago) with BIOCLIM and MAXENT. Historically stable areas or refugia...[Show more]
