This chapter provides an introduction to various applications of correlative approaches used in ecological niche modeling, along with the theoretical principles on which the applications are based. It demonstrates how the methods can be applied to interesting challenges to yield highly useful results, provided that the researcher understands exactly what is being estimated based on which data. It also gives examples of types of model predictions that can yield useful information. Each of the following chapters describes key questions that the niche models address, for example, where unknown populations are likely to be present, or which areas are most susceptible to nonnative species invasions. Practical considerations for implementing each application are also taken into account, and future directions and challenges are discussed.

Keywords:   ecological niche modeling, model prediction, ecological niche, model, species invasions, nonnative species
