The predicted suitability of each Triturus species’ range at the Last Glacial Maximum (MIROC and CCSM model) and at the present. This is a composite map for all nine Triturus species. For each species, its species distribution model was projected on MIROC (a) and CCSM (b) Last Glacial Maximum climate layers and on current climate layers (c), cut according to its current distribution range. Warmer colors refer to a higher predicted suitability. The insets show the situation for T. cristatus (left) and T. marmoratus (right) in their area of sympatry (shown in dark gray on the main map).
