High Resolution Ecological Niche Modeling of Ixodes scapularis Ticks Based on Passive Surveillance Data at the Northern Frontier of Lyme Disease Emergence in North America

PMCID: 5930794
PMID: 29565748
DOI: 10.1089/vbz.2017.2234

[…] gative site, leaving 17 points in the evaluation dataset. This process was repeated 15 times, reporting the mean and standard error of the evaluation metrics. Model evaluation was performed using the dismo (Hijmans et al. ) package in R, which provides tools to calculate binary classification statistics such as sensitivity and AUC given a MaxEnt model and presence/absence data. […]


Introduced bullfrog facilitates pathogen invasion in the western USA

PLoS One
PMCID: 5901863
PMID: 29659568

[…] spatial filter to presence data reduces overfitting; therefore, we applied a 10 arc-minute (~12 km2) spatial filter by randomly choosing one Bd occurrence site from every 10 arc-minute area using R (dismo [] and maptools [] packages). This resulted in 746 Bd-positive sites with environmental data for model training. We further minimized sampling bias by restricting background sampling areas to a […]


Delineation and mapping of coastal shark habitat within a shallow lagoonal estuary

PLoS One
PMCID: 5896943
PMID: 29649261
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0195221

[…] re used to predict potential abundance throughout the entire area of Pamlico Sound covered by NCDMF surveys []. To accomplish this, the function gbm.auto was used to automate several functions of the dismo and gbm packages in R [,]. […]


Extending the paleontology–biogeography reciprocity with SDMs: Exploring models and data in reducing fossil taxonomic uncertainty

PLoS One
PMCID: 5874039
PMID: 29590174

[…] those attributable to random guessing) to a hypothetical set of correct projections. These procedures were repeated 50 times, with resampling of training and test sets for each iteration. We used the Dismo [] and randomForest [] packages in R (version 3.3.1).Our aim was to evaluate the use of SDM as a tool to assess past species distribution at specific ages in the geological past, and to reconstr […]


Long‐term ecological data for conservation: Range change in the black‐billed capercaillie (Tetrao urogalloides) in northeast China (1970s–2070s)

Ecol Evol
PMCID: 5916277
PMID: 29721263
DOI: 10.1002/ece3.3859

[…] of complex multivariate data using thin plate smoothing splines with ANUSPLIN ver. 4.36. For each period, bioclimatic variables were derived from the monthly temperature and rainfall values with the dismo package in R (R Development Core Team, Vienna, Austria). From this, we obtained 19 history bioclimatic variables (Appendix ).To derive future climate projections, we used GCMs based on four repr […]


Hydrological features and the ecological niches of mammalian hosts delineate elevated risk for Ross River virus epidemics in anthropogenic landscapes in Australia

PMCID: 5859420
PMID: 29554980
DOI: 10.1186/s13071-018-2776-x

[…] , ].All analyses were conducted in the R environment [], with the exception of the computation of the distance rasters, which, as described above, was conducted using QGIS. The maxent function in the dismo package (v. 0.9–3) was used to fit the models [, ]. […]
