Species Distribution Modeling within an Ensemble Forecasting framework
biomod2 is the updated object-oriented version of BIOMOD package.
biomod2 offers the possibility to run 10 state-of-the-art modeling techniques to describe and model the relationships between a given species and its environment. It is an attempt to define the ecological niche of a particular species using environmental variables (temperature, precipitation, ...) with the potential use of making, for instance, future projections under climate and land use change scenarios. Although it has been mostly developed for ecologists that aim to predict species distribution, biomod2 can also be used to model any binomial data (for instance, gene, markers, ecosystem...) in function of any explanatory variables.
