Liu, Y., & Shi, J. 2020 Predicting the Potential Global Geographical Distribution of Two Icerya Species under Climate Change. Forests 11: doi:10.3390/f11060684


  • dispersal
  • distribution
  • Notes: Climate change is predicted to alter the geographic distribution of a wide variety of taxa, including insects. The purpose of this study is to determine the potentially suitable habitats of Icerya aegyptiaca (Douglas) and I. purchasi Maskell, then to provide scientific management strategies. Africa, South America and Asia would be more suitable for I. aegyptiaca. South America, Asia and Europe would be more suitable for I. purchasi. Moreover, most of the highly habitat suitability areas of I. aegyptiaca will become concentrated in Southern Asia.
