Table 3 The future distributions of marlberry (Ardisia japonica) according to dispersal capacity and the ratio of climatic suitable habitats unlimited by dispersal vs. those restricted by dispersal mechanisms. The dispersal capacity is a function of dispersal distance, coefficients for the negative exponential equation, and the first reproduction year
