he main outputs of the Maxent models are maps that estimate the probability that a species will be present at a given location. The maps we present were transformed into a cumulative or percentile form, where each pixel shows the proportion of all other pixels in the study region having less suitable habitat. These “class rankings” facilitate comparisons among species. The Maxent models are examples of bioclimatic or niche models that are meant to describe the current potential distribution of species as constrained by climate and vegetation. They are more reliable than spatial interpolation models because they incorporate environmental conditions in addition to purely spatial factors such as location and distance...
