Main content

The potential distribution and quantified ecological niche describes where conditions are suitable for occurrence and for supporting the survival of the species. During the PhD Project, distribution model/s of some selected plant species will be prepared for current and the IPCC projected climatic scenario/s then potential shift of species in current and future climatic scenarios will be analyzed. The findings shall be useful in proactive management of the species in climate change scenario.
