Présentation
Climate change will affect the suitable cultivation ranges of hundreds of agroforestry tree species. It is likely to constrain productivity of currently adapted germplasm, and open up new opportunities for introducing new, better adapted species and varieties. Ecological niche modeling has emerged as a promising tool for evaluating climate change impacts on species/varieties and for identifying better adapted germplasm for different climate change scenarios. However, applying this method requires specialized training ; and running analyses for the huge number of species involved needs substantial time and effort. This proposal aims at establishing a framework to generate species suitability maps for hundreds of species at a time and to make these publically available. Mango varieties in Kenya will be used as a case study.
