Favourability: concept, distinctive characteristics and potential usefulness

  title={Favourability: concept, distinctive characteristics and potential usefulness},
  author={Pelayo Acevedo and Raimundo Real},
The idea of analysing the general favourability for the occurrence of an event was presented in 2006 through a mathematical function. However, even when favourability has been used in species distribution modelling, the conceptual framework of this function is not yet well perceived among many researchers. The present paper is conceived for providing a wider and more in-depth presentation of the idea of favourability; concretely, we aimed to clarify both the concept and the main distinctive… CONTINUE READING
