Wildfire ignition distributionmodels are powerful tools for predicting the probability of ignitions across broad areas, and identifying their drivers. Several approaches have been used for ignition-distribution modelling, yet the performance of different model types has not been compared. This is unfortunate, given that conceptually similar speciesdistributionmodels exhibit pronounced differences amongmodel types. Therefore, our goal was to compare the predictive performance, variable… CONTINUE READING
