The project is aimed to apply species distribution model to increase the knowledge about processes that have affected and that will affect in the future the distribution of biodiversity in South-western Alps. The project will enable to identify past and future refugia and understand the role played by climatic stability in establish the current distribution pattern of endemic plant species in the main centre of endemism in the Alps. In addition, this study will enable to understand any relationship between past and future processes in affecting species distribution. This knowledge is useful to improve conservation strategies taking into account for evolutionary processes.
