DNA barcode analyses improve accuracy in fungal species distribution models

Javier Fernández-López, M. Teresa Telleria, Margarita Dueñas, Tom May & María P. Martín
Species distribution models based on environmental predictors are useful to explain a species geographic range. For many groups of organisms, including fungi, the increase of occurrence data sets has generalized their use. However, fungal species are not always easy to distinguish, and taxonomy of many groups is not completely settled. This study explores the effect of taxonomic uncertainty in databases used for modeling fungal distributions. We analyze distribution models for three morphospecies from the corticioid...
