Analysis of the sensitivity of different species distribution models to the degradation of biological and environmental information. available
Species distribution models (SDM) are a fundamental tool in the field of conservation biology, as they provide us with information on the probability patterns of species presence within a territory, help us to understand the biological requirements of species, or the environmental factors related to changes in the richness and diversity of ecosystems, both due to the exploitation of their resources and their natural evolution. Although these are statistical processes with high computational demands, technological progress in recent decades has allowed for a rapid development of different procedures. However, these tools are all the more accurate the better the accessible information (biological and environmental) on the territory under study. Knowing the limitations that the most frequently used methods in the literature have on the quality of the information on entrance is fundamental for deciding which is the most appropriate tool to use depending on the primary data available.
