Niche dynamics of Memecylon in Sri Lanka: distribution patterns, climate change effects, and conservation priorities

Prabha Amarasinghe, Narayani Barve, Hashendra Kathriarachchi, Bette Loiselle & Nico Cellinese
Aim: Recent climate projections have shown that the distribution of organisms in island biotas is highly affected by climate change. Here, we present the results of the analysis of niche dynamics of a plant group, Memecylon on Sri Lanka, an island, using species occurrences and climate data. We aim to determine which climate variables explain current distribution, model how climate change impacts the availability of suitable habitat for Memecylon, and determine conservation priority areas for...
