A tool for simulating and communicating uncertainty when modelling species distributions under future climates

Gould, Susan F; Beeton, Nicholas J.; Harris, Rebecca M.B.; Hutchinson, Michael; Lechner, Alex M.; Porfirio, Luciana; Mackey, Brendan


Tools for exploring and communicating the impact of uncertainty on spatial prediction are urgently needed, particularly when projecting species distributions to future conditions. We provide a tool for simulating uncertainty, focusing on uncertainty due to data quality. We illustrate the use of the tool using a Tasmanian endemic species as a case study. Our simulations provide probabilistic, spatially explicit illustrations of the impact of uncertainty on model projections. We also illustrate...[Show more]
