climatchR: An implementation of Climatch in R

September 2, 2021

Matching climate envelopes of allows people to examine how potential invasive species may match habitats. The Australian government created Climatch to do allow for these comparisons. However, this webpage does not allow for readily scripting climate matching. Hence, the authors created climatchR, an R package (R Core Team 2020) implementing the climatch method in R. This was created to allow automated screening for invasive species. The package is a USGS software release.
The purpose of the package is to document these models for use in USGS projects and allow easy discrimination.
