EEB 550 - Ecological Niche Models and Species’ Distributions

3 Credit Hours
Development of GIS tools with applications in conservation biology, ecology, and phylogeography has provided new research avenues that combine cross-disciplinary knowledge. In particular, ecological niche modeling (ENM) used to investigate species’ geographic distributions has generated much interest in recent years. Covers theoretical aspects of ecological niche modeling, various types of environmental data (e.g., climatic, topographic, vegetation indices) and species’ records, and best practices for running ecological niche models. Students will learn how to generate niche models and will use distributional estimates to address questions related to species’ ecology, conservation, and biogeography.
