Modelling ecological niches with support vector machines

  title={Modelling ecological niches with support vector machines},
  author={John M. Drake and Christophe F. Randin and Antoine Guisan},
1. The ecological niche is a fundamental biological concept. Modelling species’ niches is central to numerous ecological applications, including predicting species invasions, identifying reservoirs for disease, nature reserve design and forecasting the effects of anthropogenic and natural climate change on species’ ranges. 2. A computational analogue of Hutchinson’s ecological niche concept (the multidimensional hyperspace of species’ environmental requirements) is the support of the… CONTINUE READING
