Here we present the maps probable suitable habitat of 26 of 43 rare plants in the California desert. The multispecies map of probable suitable habitat combines data from all 26 species for which probable suitable habitat was mapped and indicates the number of species for which probable suitable habitat is predicted at each location.
Data are presented at a spatial resolution of 10 m pixels, which was required to harmonize the original model inputs. However, maps of suitable habitat should be used at a resolution no smaller than 360 m (i.e., 36 pixels x 36 pixels), which corresponds with the resolution of the coarsest model input.
This product can be used to inform future conservation, planning, and management actions in the California desert. Complete methods and other additional information are provided in the journal article associated with this data release (Reese and others, 2019).
