Through theory, applications, and examples of inferences, this book shows how to conduct and evaluate niche modeling projects in any area of application. It shows code used in a series of theoretical and practical exercises for developing and evaluating ecological niche models. Topics include geographic information systems, multivariate modeling, artificial intelligence methods, data handling, and information infrastructure. The author then features applications of predictive modeling methods with reference to valid inference from assumptions. This is a seminal reference for ecologists as well as a superb hands-on text for students.
