This data bundle contains some of the inputs, all of the processing instructions and all outputs from a single VisTrails/SAHM workflow. This model specifically includes field data of thinned occurrence locations and random background locations and un-thinned occurrence locations and targeted background locations for three species of tegu lizards in South America. Predictors included bioclimatic, tree cover, season length, potential evapotranspiration and solar radiation index rasters. Details about both inputs are included in the associated manuscript. The three bundle documentation files are: 1) '_archive_bundle_metadata.xml' (this file) which contains FGDC metadata describing the archive bundle. 2) 'PredictorList.csv' and PredictorList_North [...]
