Modeling the ecological niche: Influences of spatial resolution and fractal dimension of the landscape on thermal opportunity

Posted August 4, 2011

Sears Species distribution models are often based on data with a spatial resolution that is much larger than the actual environments that individual organisms experience. Further, these models assume that all habitats within a spatial unit are homogeneous. Both of these assumptions are potentially problematic, yet these models are […]
