Variable vulnerability to climate change in New Zealand lizards

Scott Jarvie, Travis Ingram, David Chapple, Rodney Hitchmough, Stuart Nielsen & Joanne M. Monks
Aim: The primary drivers of species and population extirpations have been habitat loss, overexploitation, and invasive species, but human-mediated climate change is expected to be a major driver in future. To minimise biodiversity loss, conservation managers should identify species vulnerable to climate change and prioritise their protection. Here, we estimate climatic suitability for two speciose taxonomic groups, then use phylogenetic analyses to assess vulnerability to climate change. Location: Aotearoa New Zealand (NZ) Taxa: NZ lizards:...
