Species distribution models in conservation biogeography
This Collection. Login Register. We use the distribution of 24 endemic mammals to prioritize conservation sites in the MMC and to evaluate the current Mexican system of protected natural areas PNA. We used species distribution models and the software ConsNet 2. The representation maximization problem including current PNA was ineffective for reaching conservation targets. Meanwhile, all area minimization problems allowed us to prioritize areas reaching the targets of surrogates.
This solution proposes the protection of a total of 37, km2, covering areas with altitude above 2, m located mainly in the Sierra Madre Occidental, the Transmexican Volcanic Belt, and provinces of the Sierra Madre del Sur.
A prioritization strategy based on the distribution of endemic mammals as surrogates can help to maintain the distributional patterns of endemism of the Mexican biota. Key words: conservation biogeography; endemicity; mammals; Mexico; surrogates; sympatry.
