Congruence between future distribution models and empirical data for an iconic species at Joshua Tree National Park

ESA Journal

Since the study inception, we have added several macroplots beyond the park boundary, of which one was used for this study, a site on land owned by Mojave Desert Land Trust (MDLT) 5 km north of the park, which contains transition zone vegetation and is similar in climate to the West Entrance macro-plot. Here, we focus on the subset of 14 macro-plots containing Joshua trees.
