Reese, G.C., and Carter, S.K., 2019, Probable and potential suitable habitat for 43 rare plant species in the California desert: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


Here we present the map of probable suitable habitat for Harwood's eriastrum (Eriastrum harwoodii). The data indicate both how many models predicted each location to be 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. This product can be used to inform future conservation, planning, and management actions in the California desert. Complete methods and other additional information are provided [...]
