The CLIMEX model takes explicit account of the areas where this species can overwinter in southern USA, and those areas where it can seasonally expand its range into northern parts of the USA, and down into South Africa. It also makes us of the Global Map of Irrigated Areas (GMIA) to develop a composite risk map combining a natural rainfall and an irrigation scenario.
