All CLIMEX models - AdaptNRM module 2: Invasive plant species and climate change
Global and Australian maps of Species Distribution Models (SDM) for current and 2070 climates for invasive plant species for which there are published CLIMEX models. The parameters for the model are listed in a cxp file. A GIS suitable file is provided.

The species distribution maps were produced by using the computer program CLIMEX. The parameters used are based on published sources. The inclusion of models in this table implies nothing about their quality or how useful they might be for understanding species invasions with climate change. Note also that the models only use climate to calculate the projections. A species distribution may also be determined by microhabitat, biotic and other abiotic factors.

Module 2: Weed projections and invasion
This module of the national NRM project aims to deliver a summary of knowledge, processes and tools in a form useful to NRM groups for climate adaptation planning for existing and future invasions by plant species that may occur following climate change.
