Brief descriptionThis collection includes each of the climate variables (including quantile-based extremes) and predicted plant species distributions (37) generated as part of the manuscript titled 'Climate extreme variables generated using monthly time-series data improve predicted distributions of plant species' (Stewart et al. 2020a; doi: 10.1111/ecog.05253).
LineageClimate variables are generated using 39 years of monthly maximum temperature (Stewart & Nitschke 2017), minimum temperature (Stewart & Nitschke 2018) and precipitation data (Stewart, et al. 2020b). Annual calculations for maximum temperature of the hottest month (BIO5), minimum temperature of the coldest month (BIO6), and precipitation of the driest quarter (BIO17) were used to quantify 'base climate' (long-term means), variability (standard deviations) and extremes of varying return intervals (defined using quantiles) based on historical observations. A tutorial, with R code, for producing these layers is provided in the supporting information to the manuscript (SDMExtremes_AppendixS2.pdf).
Species distribution models were fitted and predicted for 37 plant species across Victoria using boosted regression trees, following the procedures detailed in the published manuscript. Images are provided for base climate, variability and extreme (with 1 in 15 year return interval) models. All cross validation results are provided in the supporting information to the manuscript (SDMExtremes_Appendix_S4.xlsx).
