Nicolò Anselmetto is a PhD student at the Department of Agricultural, Forest and Food Sciences at University of Torino, Italy, under the supervision of Prof. Matteo Garbarino. His research project involves analysis and scenarios of global change effects on mountain forest ecosystems. In particular, he applies statistical spatial models such as species distribution models (SDMs) and landscape models to explore the effects of climate change and land abandonment in the Alpine region. The research presented at the EGU conference showed how the use of microclimate (i.e., under-canopy temperature) variables and several temporal resolutions can improve SDMs for biodiversity conservation within mountain landscapes.
