Predictive multi-scale occupancy models at range-wide extents: effects of habitat and human disturbance on distributions of wetland birds

Bryan Stevens & Courtney Conway
Aim: Predicting distributions is fundamental to ecology, yet hindered by spatially-restricted sampling, scale-dependent relationships, and detection error associated with field surveys. Predictive species distribution models (SDMs) are nonetheless vital for conservation of many species. We developed a framework for building predictive SDMs with multi-scale data, and used it to develop range-wide breeding-season SDMs for 14 marsh bird species of concern. Location: USA. Methods: We built SDMs using data from range-wide surveys conducted over 14 years,...
