Uploaded by Patric Brandt
Description:
This package contains 13 polygon layers representing baseline and predicted future climate niches (2050s & 2080s) of Northern Spotted Owl (Strix occidentalis caurina). The modeling algorithm Maxent and the Worldclim predictor set have been used to compute niche projections under two emission scenarios (A1B & A2A) based on three general circulation models (CSIRO, CCCMA & HADCM3). The shapefiles are derived from gridded model outputs with a grid cell resolution of 30 arc-seconds.
