Xerospermophilus mohavensis Historic Habitat

Summary

Predicted habitat suitability model (also known as a species distribution model) for the Mojave Ground Squirrel (Xerospermophilus mohavensis) in 5 counties (Inyo, Kern, San Bernardino, and Los Angeles), in California. This model was generated using a maximum entropy (MaxEnt, v3.3.3e) approach. This layer is a probability distribution of 'suitable habitat', where values range from 0 (very low probability of species occurrence) to 1 (very high probability of species occurrence). As with any model, prudence should be taken when evaluating model predictions or when applying the predictions to real world assessments of habitat. The logistic output values were rescaled to include the set [0,1] by subtracting the minimum value and dividing [...]
