We used a novel statistical method based on plant functional traits and the principle of maximum entropy to predict actual and future plant community structure under various climate change scenarios in the arid steppes of eastern Morocco. Our results show that even the least severe scenario, in terms of aridity, will lead to woody encroachment, thus reducing ecosystem services.
