Reactivado en febrero de Certainly, the critical factor is the potential loss of humidity, which is highly influential perennfolio this community. Aceptado en marzo de Extinction risk from climate change. El bosque de niebla del centro de Veracruz: As a boque to assess the accuracy of our findings, we overlaid the potential distribution models obtained with the corresponding vegetation map of current land use and vegetation. If we would like to encourage the preservation of any kind of vegetation, we should consider changes in land use as well as the distance and the barriers that the composing species must overcome in order to be able to colonize and settle in new areas.

It should facilitate the preservation of species currently comprising natural communities, by allowing fast movement so they can quickly colonize and establish in bosqeu geographical areas, and there they can continue evolving. Five of them likely will not encounter right conditions for their survival within the limits of Veracruz.

Realized and potential climate niches: We analyzed the geographical and ecological patterns of tropixal in a group of 51 characteristic species commonly associated to tropical evergreen forest, coniferous forest and cloud forest present in Veracruz. Foresta Veracruzana 6 2: We could explain this expected trend of the coniferous forest by considering that these forests have a wide ecological span as they thrive in arid, semi-wet and frankly wet climates, and they may be found from sea level to the upper limit of tree growth Rzedowski, This seems troical match the rising trend of the strip of fog that has already been described Perrennifolio et al.

There is also a displacement to areas with higher elevation in the tropical evergreen forest to m and cloud forest to m. The approach followed was based on the technique of ecological niche modelling carried out with the Genetic Algorithm for Rule-set Production GARP and variables of future climatic condition located by in time estimated for an A2 scenario which is devised for a situation where humanity would be generating medium to high emissions.

Peterson balso pointed out that the species from the plains will be most affected by climate change. This environmental variation makes Veracruz one of the most biologically diverse states in the country. Modeled climate change effects on distributions of Canadian butterfly species.

We found that most of the selected species characteristic of cloud forest are likely to decline by We regarded the surface in our potential vegetation maps outside of the current vegetation type maps of Veracruz we produced as the area susceptible to climate change under the chosen scenario. Predicting distributions of Mexican birds using ecological niche modelling methods.


GARP generates a niche model for a species, aiming to characterize the environmental conditions under which it is estimated that the species should be able to thrive.


The idea we pursue assumes that the sum of climatic niches of individual species autoecology could allow the reconstruction of communities to a certain degree, considering that they share similar environmental requirements. We have to keep in mind that, in addition to physiological tolerances, the potential displacement of each species will be associated with many other factors. The analysis of potential future distribution ranges of plant communities has been the subject of various studies and discussions Osborne et al.

For the coverage of tropical evergreen forest Fig. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The modelling training region was established based on the idea that the species have the ability to disperse to certain geographical areas as long as they have the chance e.

This process is already causing changes in the geographical distribution of species as well as alterations in phenology. Ferreira de Siqueira, M. In this regard, we believe that the likely dynamics of the species in response to climate change will more likely take place species by species rather than whole assemblages, as suggested by Thomas et al.
