Description

Species distribution models (SDMs) are one of a variety of statistical methods that link individuals, populations, and species to the habitats they occupy. In Fieberg et al. "Species distribution models: Predictive snipers or shots in the dark?", we introduce a new method for model calibration, which we call Used-Habitat Calibration plots (UHC plots) that can be applied across the entire spectrum of SDMs. Here, we share the Program R code and data necessary to replicate all three of the examples from the manuscript that together demonstrate how UHC plots can help with three fundamental challenges of habitat modeling: identifying missing covariates, non-linearity, and multicollinearity.
