Studying the patterns and processes that have defined the distribution of biodiversity in the past can provide insight into what we can expect for the future in terms of biodiversity responses to climate change and changes in land use. One of the aspects Jesús Aguirre Gutierrez focuses on is modelling the distribution of three different pollinator groups: bees, butterflies and hoverflies. He investigates whether the importance that environmental drivers have for setting the species range limits has changed over time.
