The ideas in this review developed in part from discussions with many of our colleagues but especially Jane Elith, Brian Helmuth, Ary Hoffmann, Nicola Mitchell, Adnan Moussali, Ben Phillips, Devi Stuart-Fox, C. Richard Tracy and Brendan Wintle, and with participants at a workshop on 'Nonequilibrium species distribution modelling' organized by the Applied Environmental Decision Analysis group. The authors are indebted to Volker Bahn, Nicola Mitchell, Adnan Moussalli, Devi Stuart-Fox and three anonymous referees for insightful comments on the manuscript.
