We present models predicting the potential distribution of a threatened ant species, Formica exsecta Nyl., in the Swiss National Park (SNP). Data to fit the models have been collected according to a random-stratified design with an equal number of replicates per stratum. The basic aim of such a sampling strategy is to allow the formal testing of biological hypotheses about those factors most likely to account for the distribution of the modeled species. The stratifying factors used in this… CONTINUE READING
