Test Data For The Niche Dynamics Analysis In The Invaded Range Of A Hypothetical Species

Data frame that contains geographical coordinates, environmental variables, occurrence sites for the studied species and the prediction of its distribution in the invaded range. These predictions are provided by SDM calibrated on the native range.

Usage
data(ecospat.testNiche.inv)
Details

The study area is Australia, which is the invaded range of the hypothetical species.

Eight topo-climatic explanatory variables to quantify niche differences: ratio of the actual potential evapotranspiration; growing degree days; precipitation; potential evapotranspiration; annual variation of precipitations; maximum temperature of the warmest month; minimum temperature of the coldest month; and annual mean temperature.

Format

ecospat.testNiche.inv is a data frame with the following columns:

x

Longitude, in WGS84 coordinate system of the species occurrence.

y

Latitude, in WGS84 coordinate system of the species occurrence.

aetpet

Ratio of actual to potential evapotranspiration.

gdd

Growing degree-days above 5 degrees C.

p

Annual amount of precipitations.

pet

Potential evapotranspiration.

stdp

Annual variation of precipitations.

tmax

Maximum temperature of the warmest month.

tmin

Minimum temperature of the coldest month.

tmp

Annual mean temperature.

species_occ

Presence records of the species occurrence.

predictions

Species Distribution Model predictions of the studied species.
