In this study, researchers used almost 25 million GBIF-mediated records alongside 9,000 fossil records and a single dated phylogenetic tree to provide insights into patterns of plant diversification and biogeography.
This study maps the current locations of Arabica production using GBIF-mediated occurrences along with known locations of coffee farms, and then, using current climate data, models Arabica production onto so-called agro-ecological zones.
Identifying areas vulnerable to invasive alien species (IAS) is a prerequisite to controlling invasion. This study combines bioclimatic data with GBIF-mediated occurrences to model climatic niches for 155 invasive alien plants in India.
Relying primarily on GBIF-mediated data, researchers use the native distribution of four snakes recently introduced to the Balearic Islands in order to estimate current and future habitat suitability and understand the invasion risk they present.
A unique team of researchers from the United States, Pakistan and China refined an ecological niche model with artificial nighttime lighting imagery to identify long-term areas for conservation planning and protection of the Asiatic black bear.
This study combines DNA analysis of present-day Pacific gray whales and fossils—including newly reported specimens from the North Sea—with predictive habitat models to suggest the usefulness of keeping watch for future climate-driven dispersals of this Arctic sentinel species.
