These data are statistical model outputs for Mojave monkeyflower (
Mimulus mohavensis ) species distribution, completed by Frank Davisâ Biogeography Lab at UC Santa Barbara. Predictions of habitat occupancy for ~70 species were generated from Maxent models for the CA Energy Commissionâs project âCumulative Biological Impacts Framework for Solar Energy in the CA Desertâ, 500-10-021.
Species distribution models were produced at 270 m resolution using a subset of 22 environmental variables. Models were evaluated with 10-fold cross validated AUC scores.Â Binary layers depicting predicted suitable habitat were derived using the equal training sensitivity and specificity threshold.
Mimulus mohavensis, Max Sensitivity + Specifity threshold = 0.1646; best AUC = 0.9915; mean AUC = 0.99.Â
