Determining the Minimal Background Area for Species Distribution Models

A versatile tool that aims at (1) defining what is the minimum background extent necessary to fit good partial species distribution models and/or (2) determining if the background area used to fit a partial species distribution model is reliable enough to extract ecologically relevant conclusions from it. See Rotllan-Puig, X. & Traveset, A. (2019) .
