Ecological Niche Modeling: A Crash Course.

The abundance of digitized museum specimen records and observational occurrence data provides a fantastic resource for ecological niche modeling. However, navigating the many available methods can be bewildering. In this full-day workshop, we will provide hands-on instruction on ways to access and download these data (from GBIF, iDigBio, and other aggregators), prepare them for analysis, and apply Maxent software to construct ecological niche models. We will discuss the assumptions of the analyses and the interpretations of the results. The workshop is designed to introduce the concepts and practice of ecological niche modeling, so no experience is needed. However, we will explore advanced topics as requested. The workshop is free, and lunch is included; sponsored by iDigBio (www.idigbio.org).
