Distribution risk of invasion species

In our research about genetics, evolution and distribution risk of invasion species, we recently published a study that, in three lines, we can describe as: “Evaluating interspecific interactions between native and non-native closely related species with genetic information and niche modeling approach was key to determine the distribution patterns, range limits and invasion risks of Trachemys scripta elegans.”
