As you might have noticed, I’m doing a bit of catching up with recent papers. Here’s another one led by Reid Tingley that shows how the environmental space occupied by the cane toad in Australia has changed through the invasion on that continent compared to its native continent. We also show how the fundamental niche, as computed using the methods of biophysical ecology, maps onto environmental space. It suggests that toads are limited (possibly by a closely related species) in their native range but have expanded their realized niche dramatically in Australia to practically fill their expected fundamental niche.
The paper is here.
