Refugia areas are increasingly important for conservation planning. There are two major approaches to identifying and describing refugia, patterns and processes. The responses of species to climate change are often identified using coarse-scale species distribution models (SDMs), through parameters like hydrological niche and temperature. It is crucial to develop accurate fine-scale climate grids, and identifying in situ refugia might be more appropriate for species with poor dispersal ability.
