New publication: ExDet, an EXtrapolation DETection tool for the modelling of species distributions

Introducing the ExDet tool Correlative species distribution models (SDMs) often involve some degree of projection into novel covariate space. Most methods for identifying this extrapolation focus on the range of each model covariate individually. However, extrapolation can occur that is well within the range of univariate variation but which exhibits novel combinations between covariates. It … Continue reading New publication: ExDet, an EXtrapolation DETection tool for the modelling of species distributions
