De-extinction is becoming potentially feasible for restoring extinct species in the wild, but research is required to determine the likelihood of success in light of contemporary and future environmental change. We assessed 1900–2100 change in suitable climate and land cover in the historic range of Carolina parakeet (Conuropsis carolinensis), ivory-billed woodpecker (Campephilus principalis) and passenger pigeon (Ectopistes migratorius), in North America.(...)
