  author={Pilar A. Hernandez and Catherine H. Graham and Lawrence L. Master and Deborah L. Albert},
Species distribution models should provide conservation practioners with estimates of the spatial distributions of species requiring attention. These species are often rare and have limited known occurrences, posing challenges for creating accurate species distribution models. We tested four modeling methods (Bioclim, Domain, GARP, and Maxent) across 18 species with different levels of ecological specialization using six different sample size treatments and three different evaluation measures… CONTINUE READING
