Task 6.2.1. Integrating tools

Task lead: Wilfried Thuiller, Centre national de la recherche scientifique, France

We have developed and released BIOMOD. BIOMOD is a computer platform for ensemble forecasting of species distributions, enabling the treatment of a range of methodological uncertainties in models and the examination of species-environment relationships.

BIOMOD includes the ability to model species distributions with several techniques, test models with a wide range of approaches, project species distributions into different environmental conditions (e.g. climate or land use change scenarios) and dispersal functions. It allows assessing species temporal turnover, plot species response curves, and test the strength of species interactions with predictor variables.

BIOMOD is implemented in R and is a freeware, open source, package.
