What this webinar is about

Species re-distributions are already occurring in response to global climate change. Many species migrate to track critical environmental parameters such as their optimal temperature range. Migrations of populations to new areas come with challenges. Both evolutionary and ecological factors play a role in determining the success of the populations’ establishment in new areas. 


  • What are the key evolutionary and ecological factors precluding or facilitating the establishment of species in new geographic areas? 
  • What management actions could facilitate expansions, shifts and persistence of ranges, or prevent invasive species from expanding their ranges?
