Why I like it: Cheesequake offers a fun way to learn about different habitats, because it lies in a transitional zone between two different ecosystems. Enjoy a hike after your swim and see the vegetation change as you move from a coastal salt marsh to an upland forest.

Climatic niche occupied by V. Grey shading depicts the occurrence density of the species. When accounting only for invasion data, climate suitability is high mainly in the southwestern part of France, where the invasion initiated Fig 2A.
However, when we accounted for both native and invasive data, high climate suitability is further predicted in the north of France, in Belgium, in northern Italy and in northern Spain S3A Fig. Red points represent invasive data recorded after — that are used to evaluate the model. The dotted circle around the first invasion data blue triangle delimits all points that are within km of the first invasion data. Evaluation red points above the median have a higher predicted suitability than expected given their distance to the first invasion occurrence.
In all three cases, the predicted suitability of evaluation points is lower than the predicted suitability of calibration points, but is higher than expected given their distance to the first invasion occurrence all possible points, in grey. Such overall results thus mean that climate influences—at least to some extent—the ongoing invasion of V. We can thus further investigate whether one option provides more accurate results than the other. Overall, models thus seem to have a better predictive accuracy when accounting for invasive data only.
Percentiles of validation points further than km from the first invasion record depending on whether or not native data was accounted for to calibrate the models and on the cut-off year that was used to split the invasive data into calibration and evaluation data. Percentiles are obtained by comparing the predicted climate suitability of a given validation point to the distribution of climate suitability values of all points being at the same distance from the first invasion record than the validation point i.
Percentiles higher than 50 th thus mean that the predicted climate suitability of the validation point is higher than expected given its distance to the first invasion record. For all cut-off years, paired t-test were computed to assess the difference between models with and without native data: a red star indicates significantly higher values S1 Table.
Using the unique features of an invasion closely monitored in space and time, we demonstrated that despite some known limitations, SDMs can be a powerful tool to predict where invasive species will spread next. In fact, our case study does show that V. This finding is consistent with studies focusing on other invasive species [ 30 , 36 ].
The equilibrium hypothesis being an important assumption, its violation needs to be acknowledged when interpreting SDMs predictions [ 26 ]. Indeed, violating the equilibrium hypothesis has some consequences when modeling species distributions, among which underestimating the potential climatic niche of the species, which can in turn lead to underestimating the geographical area the species can invade [ 36 ]. However, predicting the full potential invasive range of an invasive species may not be as relevant as accurately predicting the areas that are more likely to be colonized next.
Indeed, given the cost of species monitoring and surveillance for the early detection of invasive species, it is more relevant to predict areas that might be invaded next rather than all potential areas that could be reached by the invader if the species achieved its climate equilibrium.

Information regarding the areas that might be invaded next could indeed be used by managers for a cost-effective effort on monitoring and controlling such areas. For example, in the case of V. Therefore, even if invasive species distribution models cannot predict the full potential invasion range of an invasive species that has just established [ 36 , 62 ], they can still be very valuable for invasive species management.
Yet, validation is needed for model reliability and credibility, especially when management decisions are based upon it [ 63 ]. Here, we showed that models calibrated with data from the earlier stage of invasion predicted adequately the recent invasive data of V. Although invasive species present a good opportunity to test SDMs predictions with independent data, this has rarely been done so far for the ongoing range expansions of invasive species. The few studies that pioneered this approach used evaluation metrics that have since been shown not to be appropriate when the species is not at equilibrium.
Previous studies also showed that SDMs can be used to predict invasions under climate change, through validation from field data [ 64 ], as the performance in the field of three plant species was highly correlated with SDMs predicted climate suitability. Although further studies will be needed with other species, our study indicates that SDM can be used in invasion biology to better predict where the species is most likely to spread next, once an invasion has started.
It is thus very important to monitor invasive species from the start of the invasion, so as to gather a large enough amount of information to run predictive SDMs. Besides, here we only considered climate variables, but model predictions can likely be improved by also considering non climatic drivers such as land-use variables [ 65 ], since predictions depend on the variables used to compute the models [ 66 , 67 ]. Numerous studies on invasive species distribution advocated to use distribution data from both the native and the invasive range [ 68 , 69 ].
In fact, if the species climatic niche is conserved from its native range to its invaded range, distribution data from the native range can be very valuable to characterize the full potential climatic niche of the species and thus the full geographical space it can invade.
In this context, SDMs calibrated with distribution data from only the invasive range might under-predict the potential invasive range if the species is not at equilibrium yet [ 36 ]. However, if niche conservatism during invasions has been shown for some species [ 70 , 71 ], other studies revealed niche shifts during invasions [ 29 , 72 , 73 ], highlighting an inconsistent pattern of niche conservatism during invasions [ 74 ]. Accounting for native distribution data when calibrating invasive SDM may thus not improve their predictive accuracy in all cases.
Here, we took advantage of having independent validation data to investigate this issue. It is thus clear that at this time of the invasion, the climatic niche occupied by V. If the native climatic niche is to be conserved, the full potential invasive range of the species might be better predicted by accounting for both invasive and native data, as the species is not at equilibrium with its environment in its invasive range yet Fig 1. However, if the native climatic niche of V. Furthermore, predicting the full potential invasive range might not be as relevant as predicting the areas that are most likely to be invaded next, from a management point of view.
Actually, the model predictive accuracy is slightly but significantly better when accounting for invasive data only Fig 3. Thus, if the modeling purpose is to predict which areas the species is most likely to invade next, it is better to perform the SDMs without accounting for native data. Of course, similar studies need to be carried out for other species to know whether we can generalize such results or whether it depends on the species as it appears to be the case for niche conservatism during invasions.
SDMs are increasingly used in ecology whether to predict the potential impact of global change or to predict the potential invasive range of introduced species. Yet, they are often criticized, especially because their predictive accuracy cannot be truly estimated due to a lack of independent validation data.
Our study of the invasion of V. Such a result means that the spread of V. Although more validation studies for other cases of alien invasion are needed to generalize our results, our findings validate the use of SDMs in invasion biology.
