Data Description

For each species we include the climate change refugia file showing landscape capability in all cells where a species’ current and future climate niche overlap (species_LC). These are predictions of landscape capability in 2080 under an average of RCP 4.5 and RCP 8.5. Landscape capability ranges from 0 to 1.
