Patterns of niche filling and expansion across the invaded ranges of Halyomorpha halys in North America and Europe

The study incorporates knowledge of the native-range source populations and global introduction history of brown marmorated stinkbug

Abstract

Studies of realized niche shift and model transferability in alien species usually ignore the potential effects of source populations and different invaded-range environments on niche lability. The authors incorporate knowledge of the native-range source populations and global introduction history of brown marmorated stinkbug to examine intraspecific variation in realized niche expansion and unfilling, and to investigate how niche modelling approaches are affected by that variation. Realized niche dynamics of H. halys were analyzed using an ordination method, ecological niche models (ENMs), and occurrence records from (1) East Asia, (2) North America, (3) Europe, (4) native-range source populations for North America and Europe introductions, and (5) global range.
