Michael Kearney provided predictions of the cane toad's fundamental niche. The model for this work was developed as part of an ARC Environmental Futures Network workshop held in Darwin in 2008 (BLP, SJEB) and draws inspiration from an ACERA/AEDA/AMSI workshop held in Melbourne in 2007. RT was funded by a NSERC Postgraduate Scholarship; an Endeavour International Postgraduate Research Scholarship; and a University of Sydney International Postgraduate Award. The ARC fellowships programme (BLP), The Hermon Slade Foundation (ML: HSF 07-10) and the FCT, Portugal (SJEB) provided additional funding.
