Berberis aristata is an economically important plant having medical value and has been under constant threat due to anthropogenic pressures and climate change. Species distribution modeling with different algorithms was used to understand the ecological and geographical distribution of the species in the Himalayan region using various climatic and topographic variables. Using six measures of performance evaluation (threshold-dependent and threshold-independent), the best model in the area was of Environmental Distance. Such studies therefore, will try to define the suitable management strategies (conservation and protection) for the region.
