Species Distribution MOdeling with Pseudo-Absences
Tools for transferable species distribution modeling and pseudo-absence
data generation allowing the straightforward design of relatively complex experiments
with multiple factors affecting the uncertainty (variability) of SDM outputs
(pseudo-absence sample, climate projection, modeling algorithm, etc.), and the
quantification of the contribution of different factors to the final variability
following the method described in Deque el al. (2010) <10.1007>.
Multiple methods for pseudo-absence data generation can be applied, including the novel
Three-step method as described in Iturbide et al. (2015) <10.1016>.
Additionally, a function for niche overlap calculation is provided, considering the metrics
described in Warren et al. (2008) <10.1111/j.1558-5646.2008.00482.x> and in
Pianka (1973) <10.1146/annurev.es.04.110173.000413>.10.1016>10.1007>
