This R package obtains species records from the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) or the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA), and retrieves climate variables at species locations from WorldClim, and optionally, potential evapotranspiration (PET) from the CGIAR-CSI aridity database.
Use this package if you want to estimate broad climate occupancy by species, as defined by for example mean annual precipitation and mean annual temperature across the range where the species occurs.
The main use of the package is the function
climate_presence, which takes the following steps. Step 3 is optional but was the main reason to write this package.
To install the speciesmap package from github, use the following command. The package is not yet available on CRAN.
