These data provide current and future projected habitat distribution models for four shrub species: beaked hazelnut (Corylus cornuta), Oregon grape (Mahonia aquifolium), salal (Gaultheria shallon), and black huckleberry, (Vaccinium membranaceum), as well as a current projected habitat distribution model for evergreen huckleberry (Vaccinium ovatum). Each raster file represents the projected habitat suitability for each shrub species, climate scenario, and time period. Files are named according to the species (coco = Corylus cornuta, maaq = Mahonia aquifolium, gash = Gaultheria shallon, vame = Vaccinium membranaceum, and vaov2 = Vaccinium ovatum), then the RCP pathway (none for current, 'low' for RCP 4.5, and 'high' for RCP 8.5), and lastly, the time period (current = 1981-2010, mid = 2041-2071, and end = 2071-2100). For example, 'maaq_low_mid.tif' is a raster file showing projected habitat suitability for Mahonia aquifolium for mid-century (2041-2070) under RCP 4.5.
