Simposium "Avances conceptuales y metodológicos de la teoría del nicho ecológico". Title of talk: "The A and B factor in species distributions modelling"
Climate change is altering phenology and distributions of many species and further changes are projected for the 21st century. Can species physiologically adapt to projected climate warming? In a recent "review and synthesis" in Ecology Letters we analysed thermal tolerances of a large number of terrestrial ectotherm (n= 697), endotherm (n=227) and plant (n=1816) species worldwide, and showed that
