Habitat suitability modelling of rare species using Bayesian networks: Model evaluation under limited data

Hamilton (Chen), Serena; Pollino, Carmel; Jakeman, Anthony


Paucity of data on rare species is a common problem, preventing the use of most approaches to model development and evaluation. This study demonstrates how models can be developed and different forms of evaluation can be performed despite a lack of sufficient data, by presenting a habitat suitability model for the rare Astacopsis gouldi, the giant freshwater crayfish. We use a Bayesian network approach that readily incorporates incomplete data and allows for the evaluation of uncertainties. To...[Show more]
