Spatio-temporal distribution models for dabbling duck species across the continental United States

August 7, 2019

These data describe the spatio-temporal distribution of dabbling duck species across the continental United States during four biologically relevant seasons. This dataset contains two types of distribution models: (1) probability of presence, and (2) abundance. The model type, species, and season depicted in a raster are defined in the file name. File names begin with either abun (indicating that it is an abundance model) or prob (indicating a probability of occurrence model). Following model type is species, for which there are 10 provided: ambd (American Black Duck), amew (American Wigeon), buwt (Blue-winged Teal), cint (Cinnamon Teal), gadw (Gadwall), gnwt (Green-winged Teal), mall (Mallard), motd (Mottled Duck), norp (Nirthern Pintail), and nors (Northern Shoveler). Finally, season is indicated as either Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall.
