How will the responses be in the future?
What are models using for future prediction?
Biological models
Species distribution models (SDMs)
Dynamic global vegetation models (DGVMs)
Gap models
Comparison of models
SDMs do not address competition
Gap models have a limited spatial scale
DGVMs do not estimate at species level
