Validation Tests of Predictive Models of Butterfly Occurrence Based on Environmental Variables

  title={Validation Tests of Predictive Models of Butterfly Occurrence Based on Environmental Variables},
  author={Erica Fleishman and Ralph Mac Nally and John P. Fay},
Ecologists often seek to predict species distributions as functions of abiotic environmental variables. Statistical models are useful for making predictions about the occurrence of species based on variables derived from remote sensing or geographic information systems. We previously used 14 topographically based environmental variables from 49 locations in the Toquima Range (Nevada, U.S.A.) and species inventories conducted over 4 years (1996–1999) to model logistically the occurrence of… CONTINUE READING
