Consensus Forecasting of Species Distributions: The Effects of Niche Model Performance and Niche Properties
Ensemble forecasting is advocated as a way of reducing uncertainty in species distribution modeling (SDM). This is because it is expected to balance accuracy and robustness of SDM models. However,Expand
