Series: Spatio-Temporal Accounting of Biotic Threats
Have your research, studies or work required you to examine the geographic distribution of various species? This could be for crop protection, forestry, environmental protection, environmental impact assessment, urban and natural landscape design and development, or simply an interest in any given species, whether insects, pathogens or weeds? Then you are at the right place, species distribution models allow us to understand the potential and realized distribution of various species across our landscapes at different scales.
