Maps, graphs and image collections to help understand P. lanceolata. Check back periodically as this page is updated frequently.

                                                                         Plantago lanceolata is native to Western Eurasia and introduced to other continents. 

Reported global occurrences of Plantago lanceolata, accessed from GBIF, the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (http://www.gbif.org) and BIEN, the Botanical Information and Ecology Network (http://bien.nceas.ucsb.edu/bien/) in 2014.





























The map shows the projected global distribution of Plantago lanceolata based on reported occurrences available in 2014 in GBIF and BIEN databases. We used four different techniques ensembled in BIOMOD2 package in R to obtain this map, where green areas represent highly suitable habitats of the species. Because global species occurrence repositories are incomplete, current models fail to predict correctly the distribution of P. lanceolata (e.g. in Western Asia).



A two-dimensional perspective of Plantago lanceolata niche space, defined by mean annual temperature and annual precipitation (blue and yellow hexagons represent reported occurrence records in GBIF and BIEN databases). Red dots represent PLANTPOPNET permanent plots as of Jan 2016 labelled by ISO country code. PLANTPOPNET aims at covering a large portion of P. lanceolata niche space.








































Extremes of the two-dimensional niche space of Plantago lanceolata defined by combined mean annual temperature and annual precipitation, identified using the whole geographic range of the species. Examining the effect of these extreme abiotic conditions on the variation in traits and demographic performance of P. lanceolata is one of the goals of PLANTPOPNET.
