suitable environment models for Japanese beetle

A new study modeling potential future climate-change scenarios finds the range of suitable habitat for the Japanese beetle (Popillia japonica) would shift northward. Compared to it current range in North America (A), the southern U.S. showed range contractions in the two future scenarios (B and C), while ranges expanded significantly in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba in Canada as well as in New England and the northern Midwest in the U.S. (Image originally published in Kistner-Thomas 2019, Journal of Insect Science)
