Although studies about climate change impacts on plant species are often published on prestigious journals, in particular when they deal with broad areas and numerous species, in this manuscript I advance my doubts on their methodological robustness and, as a consequence, on their results. In particular I focus my attention on two major drawbacks, i.e. the need for a) nonlinear community-based models instead of species-based ones, and b) for the replacement of the potential niche with the future niche in predictive models.
