We provide a global spatially explicit characterization of terrestrial and marine habitat types, as defined in the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) habitat classification scheme, which is widely used in ecological analyses, including for assessing species’ Area of Habitat. The maps broaden our understanding of habitats globally, assist in constructing area of habitat (AOH) refinements and are relevant for broad-scale ecological studies and future IUCN Red List assessments.
The ibis.iSDM package provides a series of convenience functions to fit integrated Species Distribution Models (iSDMs). With integrated models we generally refer to SDMs that incorporate information from different biodiversity datasets, external parameters such as priors or offsets with respect to certain variables and regions.
Spatial layers of global importance highlighting the upper potential value of conserving biodiversity, carbon and water assets under different area-based conservation targets.
A set of global zoning layers are provided that identify broad homologues of foodscape classes. These are comparable in a minimum set of biophysical and management characteristics and can help to plan for possible interventions and leverage points for more sustainable agriculture.
Welcome to the world of PlantFATE, a novel eco-evolutionary vegetation model designed to unravel the intricate dynamics of forests and their response to environmental change. PlantFATE stands as a powerful tool to guide conservation efforts, inform policy decisions, and foster a deeper appreciation for the wonders of nature. Embark on a journey through the intricate tapestry of forest resilience with PlantFATE as your guide.
