Humphreys, J.M., J.L. Murrow, J.D. Sullivan, and D.J. Prosser, 2019, Spatio-temporal distribution models for dabbling duck species across the continental United States: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


These data describe the spatio-temporal distribution of dabbling duck species across the continental United States during four biologically relevant seasons. This dataset contains two types of distribution models: (1) probability of presence, and (2) abundance. The model type, species, and season depicted in a raster are defined in the file name. File names begin with either abun (indicating that it is an abundance model) or prob (indicating a probability of occurrence model). Following model type is species, for which there are 10 provided: ABDU (American Black Duck), AMEW (American Wigeon), BWTE (Blue-winged Teal), CITE (Cinnamon Teal), GADW (Gadwall), AGWT (Green-winged Teal), MALL (Mallard), MODU (Mottled Duck), NOPI (Northern [...]
