Abstract

Global Climate change is a concern for herpetologists attempting to understand the influence of a changing climate on distributions and populations. Our objectives were to use Species Distributions Models (SDMs) to quanitfy distributional changes for aquatic snake species in the Midwest. An ensemble of distributions were created as a result of modeling combinations of GCMs. These data show changes in the distribution of some aquatic snake species across the Midwestern United States.
