Abstract

A multispecies GIS-based approach has been used to evaluate species richness from potential distribution maps, calculated for 58 bird species present in the study area. Species-level predictions agree with the recent Varese Province Bird Georeferenced Atlas data, not used in modeling, whereas biodiversity hotspots identified allowed a first evaluation of the efficiency of Natura 2000 sites in the area.
