Maxent modeling for predicting suitable habitat for threatened and endangered tree Canacomyrica monticola in New Caledonia
A novel method called maximum entropy distribution modeling or Maxent is used for predicting potential suitable habitat for Canacomyrica monticola, a threatened and endangered tree species in New Caledonia, using small number of occurrence records.

Ensemble Habitat Mapping of Invasive Plant Species
For the four invasive plant species tested, ensemble models were the only models that ranked in the top three models for both field validation and test data, suggesting that ensemble models may be more robust than individual species-environment matching models for risk analysis.

The Maxent model provided the most accurate predictions, followed by logistic regression, CART, and GARP, and the most suitable habitats were determined.
Spatial heterogeneity influences native and nonnative plant species richness.
The results demonstrate that ecologists must recognize the importance of spatial heterogeneity in managing native and nonnative plant species and offer an approach to quantify spatial heterogeneity to improve models of plant biodiversity.
