Impact of global warming on the distribution and survival of the gelada baboon: a modelling approach

Abstract:

The gelada baboon is a graminivorous primate whose ecology is unusually sensitive to ambient temperature. A systems model of the socio-ecology of the gelada is used to predict the impact of global warming on the species' altitudinal distribution. The species' lower altitudinal limit will rise by ≈ 500 m for every 2°C increase in global mean temperature. A 7°C rise in temperature would be sufficient to result in the species being confined to a small number of isolated mountain peaks, where its...
