Summary

Here we present the map of potential suitable habitat for Mojave menodora (Menodora spinescens var. mohavensis). The data indicate both how many models predicted each location to be potentially suitable for the species and the average standardized habitat suitability score for each location.Data are presented at a spatial resolution of 10 m pixels, which was required to harmonize the original model inputs. However, maps of suitable habitat should be used at a resolution no smaller than 360 m (i.e., 36 pixels x 36 pixels), which corresponds with the resolution of the coarsest model input. These data are intended to be used only to target future plant surveys in areas where new occurrences are most likely to benefit future habitat modelling [...]
