Ramona Maggini perso2

My main interests are species distribution models (SDMs) and how we can improve and use them for conservation purposes. I started to develop my skills in SDMs during my master thesis already with a project aiming at modelling the distribution of a threatened ant species, Formica exsecta Nyl., within the Swiss National Park (Maggini et al., 2002). I continued during my PhD that I completed in Antoine Guisan’s Ecospat lab in Lausanne, within the framework of the Landspot Project, a project supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation. The main goal of the project was to assess the possible contribution of pre-modelled habitat units to model the distribution of animal species within Switzerland. While pursuing this goal, I addressed different methodological issues in relation to Generalized additive models (GAMs) (Maggini et al., 2006) and the effect of the sample size and data stratification (environmental vs. geographic stratification). In collaboration with Dr Anthony Lehmann (UNEP/DEWA/GRID-Europe and University of Geneva, Switzerland), we also developed the first version of the Swiss Environmental Domains (FOEN, GRID-Europe, 2010).

 

Climate change represents today an additional challenge for conservation. I addressed this issue within the framework of the ClimBird project that I developed during my first postdoc at the Swiss Ornithological Institute. During the first phase of the project, I developed a conceptual framework for analysing species range shifts composed by a catalogue of the possible patterns of change in the distribution of a species along altitudinal or other environmental gradients and an improved quantitative methodology to identify and objectively describe these patterns (Maggini et al., 2011). In the second phase of the project, I modelled the present distribution of 167 breeding bird species in Switzerland using an ensemble of modern techniques (GAMs, BRTs, MARS, Maxent) and I then projected it into the future according to combined scenarios of climate warming and land use change. Assessing the vulnerability of species is very important in order to raise authorities’ awareness and to prioritize conservation actions. Using the results of the modelling and other supplementary information, I thus defined a first vulnerability index for breeding birds in Switzerland (Maggini et al., submitted).

I am currently working on a NCCARF funded project here in Australia, modelling the current and future distribution of Australia’s threatened species under different climate change scenarios and aiming at identifying the optimal restoration and protection strategies to maximize their persistence. I am still very interested in species vulnerability and currently exploring alternative ways to define it.
