Summary

This dataset portrays the "current" (2010) viability score (scale of 0 - 1.0) for Pinyon pine (Pinus edulis) in western North America. It serves as the base condition for future species-climate profiles. (From Crookston et al. 2010): To develop the climate profile, we used a data from permanent sample plots largely from Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA, Bechtold and Patterson, 2005) but supplemented with research plot data to provide about 117,000 observations (see Rehfeldt et al., 2006, 2009) describing the presence and absence of numerous species. The Random Forests classification tree of Breiman (2001), implemented in R by Liaw and Wiener (2002), was then used to predict the presence or absence of species from climate variables. [...]
