Table 3 Agricultural areas in the Sahel classified as unsuitable, suitable and highly suitable for parkland agroforestry, according to MaxEnt ecological niche modeling. Results are shown for the Baseline and for each combination of emissions scenario and time period. For future projections, averages and standard deviation of three Global Climate Models are shown
