In this hands-on workshop we are going to teach you how to use R to program ENMs, models that aim to map the distribution of species based on their ..
climatic requirements. Day by day, we will cover all the different steps of making an ENM. At the end of the course, you will understand the concept behind ENMs, and you will be equipped with the knowledge and tools to fit ENMs for different applications. Ecological niche models (ENMs) are a fundamental tool for working in global change biology. Predicting species distributions is a key step for understanding large scale biodiversity patterns and designing conservation and management plans that remain effective in the long run. In this course, we will showcase and discuss different applications of ENMs, for example, how combining population genetics with maps of the species potential ranges in the past (e.g. during the last glacial maximum) allows researchers to unveil the role of cyclic global climatic changes on population dynamics.
