As the world has warmed, species distributions have moved polewards in latitude, upwards in elevation and deeper in ocean depth. This global redistribution calls on ecologists to apply long-standing hypotheses about the factors that limit species distributions. Here I present global and regional analyses in which we can better understand how species are limited within their distributional range, to help predict and understand their future responses to increased warming.
