Testing the reliability of Canada-wide and regional species distribution models with independent field surveys and evaluating their use for conservation

Julie L Nadeau
For purposes of conservation, we require methods to predict where species occur currently, and where they are likely to move in the future. Species distribution models can be useful tools, by predicting where species are in areas that cannot be surveyed but where management decisions must occur. However, they are rarely tested using independent field surveys to determine their accuracy. These models are also generally developed over broad spatial scales; in contrast, distributions must often...
