[…] after spatially rarefying occurrence data and selecting background sample locations according to a “bias surface” (), we used replicated, geographically structured cross validation using the enmeval package in r () followed by bootstrap replication (30 iterations) to generate cis around prediction surfaces in maxent. these methods help mitigate potential issues associated with spatial […]

[…] of feature classes for both species. for c. flamarioni the optimal value for the regularization multiplier was 1, whereas for c. minutus it was 1.5 (see results of model tuning analyses in enmeval in supplementary information tables  and )., final models of both species identified abiotically suitable areas in the coastal plain region of the southern extreme of brazil. the final model […]

[…] information criterion (aicc) as criteria with which to address overfitting; this approach does not control model fit directly, but rather uses aicc to choose appropriate settings []. we used the “enmeval” package [] to fine-tune maxent models by seeking the minimum value of aicc among candidate models. enmeval provides an automated way to execute maxent models across a user-specified range […]

[…] values indicate increased sampling bias [, ]., the unfiltered data with 237 data points and two filtered data with 136 and 112 occurrence points, were subjected to model tuning using an r package enmeval [] to identify the optimum data set for modeling current distribution of walnut. the enmevaluate function in the enmeval package performs tuning and evaluation of models by automatically […]

[…] bias, and for studies that require transfer models through space or time [–]., in this study, the calibration and evaluation method for l. catesbeianus modeling was carried out using the library "enmeval" [] in the statistical software r 3.1.3 [] considering the known distribution of this species in the native range in the united states and invaded ranges in mexico, the climatic variables […]
