Assessing the effect of prevalence on the predictive performance of species distribution models using simulated data
Aim The proportion of sampled sites where a species is present is known as prevalence. Empirical studies have shown that prevalence can affect the predictive performance of species distribution models. This paper uses simulated species data to examine how prevalence and the form of species environmental dependence affect the assessment of the predictive performance of models.Methods Simulated species data were based on various functions of simulated environmental data with differing degrees of...[Show more]
