A species distribution model uses mathematics to describe how environmental variables can affect the presence of a certain species of animal or plant. An interdisciplinary group of researchers at UNSW use statistics, mathematical computation and ecology to create finely-tuned species distribution models.These models can be used to predict locations where a rare species might be found, or to help us to understand the potential threats to a species due to urban encroachment or climate change.Read the full article.
