    Abstract
    Predicting the impact of climate change on species distribution at different spatial and temporal scales has emerged as one of the important areas of research in invasion ecology and conservation biology. We used MaxEnt to predict the distribution of a highly invasive species, namely Parthenium hysterophorus L. under four Representative Concentration Pathway scenarios in 2050 and 2070 at global , regional and local spatial scales. Model predictions indicated differences in the extent of expansion in the distribution of this species under different climate change scenarios with...
