These data represent occupancy estimates for western bumble bee across the western conterminous United States. This product contains five raster layers (appearing as separate bands in a multi-band raster). The first two bands represent the predicted occupancy of western bumble bee in 1998 and 2020. We modeled western bumble bee occupancy as a function of climate and land cover. The last three bands represent future occupancy projections of western bumble bee into the mid-century (2050s). The future projections cover a range of expected changes in climate and land cover and are ranked as best-case (band 3), middle-case (band 4), and worst-case (band 5).
