Model-based inference in historical and ecological biogeography 2017!

Matthew van Dam and I will be offering a new class in Barcelona with Transmitting Science this year, based in large part on the class that Nick Matzke and I taught last year.  It's called Model-based Inference in Historical and Ecological Biogeography, and if last year was any indication it's going to be a lot of fun.  We'll mostly be focusing on BioGeoBEARS and the new ENMTools R package, and there's a whole lot of very cool stuff going on with both.  Join us if you can!

Solution to erroneous "please update your maxent program to version 3.3.3b or later" error when running maxent from dismo & ENMTools

I originally encountered this problem when trying to run maxent from ENMTools; but it turns out it was a combination of problem with the dismo package, and with my Mac machine having different versions of java installed (1.6 and 1.8).

I am pasting the solution that worked for me below, and to other relevant lists if I find them, since I didn't find a direct answer online.

Thanks - Nick
