Minimal Predicted Area

Calculate the minimal predicted area.

Usage
ecospat.mpa (Pred, Sp.occ.xy, perc)
Arguments
Pred

Numeric or RasterLayer predicted suitabilities from a SDM prediction.

Sp.occ.xy

xy-coordinates of the species (if Pred is a RasterLayer).

perc

Percentage of Sp.occ.xy that should be encompassed by the binary map.

Details

The minimal predicted area (MPA) is the minimal surface obtained by considering all pixels with predictions above a defined probability threshold (e.g. 0.7) that still encompasses 90 percent of the species` occurrences (Engler et al. 2004).

Value

Returns the minimal predicted area.
