Marine plant dispersal and connectivity measures differ in sensitivity to biophysical model parametersJodie Schlaefer, Alana Grech, Severine Choukroun, Alex B Carter, Robert Coles, Michael Rasheed, Samantha Tol, Kay Critchell & Lambrechts Jonathan
Biophysical models simulate dispersal and connectivity in marine environments by combining numerical models that represent water circulation with biological parameters that define the attributes of species. The effects of parameters on model outputs, such as the number of particles released to simulate the trajectories of individual organisms, is potentially large but is rarely tested. In this study, we develop a framework to measure the optimal number of particles required to capture variability in dispersal and...
Wallace v2.0 Initiative: Wallace v1.0 Initiative Original habitat suitability modelling for plants and animalsErin Graham, Jeremy VanDerWal & Ian Atkinson
This dataset holds the original Wallace Initatiative 1.0 modelling for plants and animals worldwide. https://wallaceinitiative.org/
High definition and 5K video of natural history of fauna and flora from Indo pacific region for both terrestrial and aquatic environments. The digital library contains behavioural images of a wealth of flora and fauna.
Wallace 2.0 uses new temperature time-series data for four RCPs provided by the UK Met Office Hadley Centre UK to model the distributions of plants and animals worldwide. Biodiversity summaries were produced at each taxa level (KPCOFGS) of plants and animals in Wallace 2.0. These include areas of concern, refugia, and richness maps.
This dataset holds miscellaneous files for producing the Wallace 2.0 modelling for plants and animals worldwide. This includes shapefiles, scripts, tarred backups, and summary files for producing the Science manuscript. https://wallaceinitiative.org/
