Thermal Niche for Seed Germination and Species Distribution Modelling of Swietenia macrophylla King (Mahogany) under Climate Change Scenarios

Abstract: Swietenia macrophylla is an economically important tree species propagated by seeds that lose their viability in a short time, making seed germination a key stage for the species recruitment. The objective of this study was to determine the cardinal temperatures and thermal time for seed germination of S. macrophylla; and its potential distribution under different climate change scenarios. Seeds were placed in germination chambers at constant temperatures from 5 to 45 °C and their thermal responses modelled us… Show more

“…The variables for the ecological niche modeling in this species are in agreement with Hernández-Ramos et al [ 26 ], and they were annual precipitation, precipitation during the driest period, diurnal temperature oscillation, and altitude, with an 88.1% contribution. At the same time, the results are comparable to the potential distribution in Mexico of the optimal climate habitat for S. macrophylla (classified in the same family, Meliaceae), in which the variables with the largest contribution were precipitation during the driest month, minimum temperature of the coldest month, temperature seasonality, and annual temperature range; with a contribution of 78.1% [ 46 ], while in another study of S. macrophylla [ 45 ], the variables with the largest contribution were mean temperature during the coldest month, mean temperature, minimum temperature, and precipitation during the growing season, with a contribution of 66.7%. According to Harmann et al [ 48 ], the distribution of forest species is determined mainly by temperature.…”

“…For the drastic scenario in the intermediate future (2050) in this work, the variables precipitation during the driest period, minimum temperature of the coldest month, annual precipitation, and soil type contributed, with 86%, while for the far future (2070), they contributed with 85.7%, which is very similar for the distribution of S. macrophylla [ 46 ]. Since the thermal variables are the same, they contributed from 80.4 to 83.2% for the construction of the distribution models of this species.…”
