Part 1 I'm not so sure about - although the simulation results on AIC were good, it's still a very weird fit for Maxent models for a number of reasons (some mentioned in that paper, some in Warren et al 2014, and some in a couple of other recent papers). My thought is that if someone's working in R and wants to do AIC (both of which I think are great ideas), it's probably more reasonable to just use one of the methods for which AIC is a more natural fit (e.g., GLM or something like that). That's the main reason I hadn't yet coded AIC into the R version, and I'm not really sure whether that's worth doing in the future.Dan Warrenhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/07528161395964087899noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4890093519663715581.post-3835382672720273422015-11-17T18:47:34.127-08:002015-11-17T18:47:34.127-08:00Hey Dan,
I have been looking into your ENMTools p...Hey Dan,<br /><br />I have been looking into your ENMTools package recently. There are two tools I'm interested in:<br /><br />1) how to calculate AIC with Maxent.<br />2) comparing predictions from SDMs using distance metrics (your niche similarity) <br /><br />I'm happy to offer whatever help I can provide in developing the package (as these are problems I'm very interested in)...or if it turns out I don't have the necessary skills to help develop it, I am definitely interested in using it. Thanks for developing this package!<br /><br />Ps. I'm a grad student at UT, and stavana called my attention to this blog. Thanks for hosting it!Cody Schankhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/00690335866156902252noreply@blogger.com
