This research project aims to predict the potential shifts in the distribution of the endangered Golden-headed lion tamarin (Leontopithecus chrysomelas) in the Atlantic forests of Brazil, by modelling the species’ climatic suitability under scenarios of future climate change.

Conference Paper
Growing human populations and associated impacts such as forest disruption and overexploitation of wildlife resources, are a rapidly growing threat to African tropical wildlife. Protected areas represent an important global conservation strategy for the preservation of biodiversity. However, inadequate funding and governmental support combined with...

This research project aims to predict the potential shifts in the distribution of the endangered Golden-headed lion tamarin (Leontopithecus chrysomelas) in the Atlantic forests of Brazil, by modelling the species’ climatological suitability under scenarios of future climate change. Through this case study within the framework of the Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) for Global Biodiversity, we test climate data provided by this new operational climate service and evaluate its usefulness. The obtained information is critical to further improve the species’ conservation action plans and guide future management decisions.
