Species distribution models (SDMs) are one of the most important GIScience research areas in biogeography and they are now the primary method used to study the effects of climate change on species distributions and ranges. However, the extrapolation of species-environment relationships involves several conceptual and methodological issues that introduce uncertainty, such as novel environmental combinations, new species interactions, unpredictable feedbacks related to land cover change, as well as the migration capacity of the species.
