This dataset portrays the viability score (scale of 0 - 1.0) for Mountain hemlock (Tsuga mertensiana) in western North America in 2030, using the Met Office Hadley Centre (UK) general circulation model (GCM) and A2 emission scenario (high emissions, regionally diverse world, rapid growth) to model future climate. (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 [...]
