Species Distribution Modeling
Species Distribution Modeling

Models that predict species' potential distributions by combining known occurrence records with digital layers of environmental variables have much potential for application in studies of ecology, evolution and conservation. This website is designed to provide practical advice and resources to those interested in developing and applying species distribution models.

Guide to species distribution modeling
This online guide has been adapted from a Network for Conservation Practitioners (NCEP) synthesis document developed by Richard G. Pearson, titled Species' distribution modeling for conservation educators and practitioners. The document, in its entirety, is also available for download in the pdf (677K) format.
