“…The inclusion of environmental factors can improve ecological studies of different organisms and ecosystems while monitoring their biological implications has application in the development of environmental-conscious policies (Wu et al, 2022). Ecological niche models (ENMs) have been used to explore the role of ecology on the current and future distribution of aquatic species (Nzei et al, 2021;Ngarega et al, 2022). Traditional ENMs assumed that populations of a species are genetically uniform and share the same niche, ignoring the possibility of local adaptation, especially for widespread species (Wiens et al, 2009).…”

“…Ecological Niche Models (ENMs) are the most frequently used technique for predicting the impact of future climate change on species' ranges and distributions. ENMs are used to forecast current and future environmental suitability and provide recommendations for identifying priority areas for protection (Tiamiyu et al, 2021), management, and conservation of species (Nzei et al, 2021), and restoration of habitats (Johnson et al, 2017; Zwiener et al, 2017). As the effects of climate change intensify, the capacity of a species to colonize new suitable habitat is dependent on the individuals' dispersal ability, landing in appropriate habitat, and stable population establishment (Angert et al, 2011; Wolf et al, 2001).…”

“…This decline threatens aquatic plants because aquatic ecosystems and obligate aquatic plants are inextricably linked. Understanding the appropriate habitat and distribution of aquatic species is required to examine the magnitude of climate change and its ramifications for species decline or increase (Nzei et al, 2021). However, one of the most challenging tasks in ecology is predicting which species will coexist in future and where they will occur (Wisz et al, 2013).…”

“…Several studies on animals, plants, insects, amphibians, reptiles, and invasive species have indicated habitat contraction or shift as a result of climate change [ 26 , 27 ]. Previous studies focusing on Ottelia and Nymphaea species in Africa have reported the variable change of suitable areas under climate change [ 28 , 29 ]. In this climate-change-prone environment, the wild populations of Nymphaea have declined significantly from the effects of climate change.…”
