Title: ENVIREM: ENVIronmental Rasters for Ecological Modeling version 1.0 Open Access Deposited

Attribute Value
Methodology
  • Rasters were generated from monthly temperature and precipitation data from Worldclim ( www.worldclim.org) and from monthly solar radiation data from the Consortium for Spatial Information ( www.cgiar-csi.org), based on formulae detailed in the literature.
Description
  • The ENVIREM dataset v1.0 is a set of 16 climatic and 2 topographic variables that can be used in modeling species' distributions. The strengths of this dataset include their close ties to ecological processes, and their availability at a global scale, at several spatial resolutions, and for several time periods. The underlying temperature and precipitation data that went into their construction comes from the WorldClim dataset ( www.worldclim.org), and the solar radiation data comes from the Consortium for Spatial Information ( www.cgiar-csi.org). The data are compatible with and expand the set of variables from WorldClim v1.4 ( www.worldclim.org). For more information, please visit the project website: envirem.github.io
