|Abstract: ||Demand for models in biodiversity assessments is rising, but which models are adequate for the task? We propose
a set of best-practice standards and detailed guidelines enabling scoring of studies based on species distribution
models for use in biodiversity assessments. We reviewed and scored 400 modeling studies over the past 20 years
using the proposed standards and guidelines. We detected low model adequacy overall, but with a marked tendency
of improvement over time in model building and, to a lesser degree, in biological data and model evaluation. We
argue that implementation of agreed-upon standards for models in biodiversity assessments would promote
transparency and repeatability, eventually leading to higher quality of the models and the inferences used in assessments.
We encourage broad community participation toward the expansion and ongoing development of
the proposed standards and guidelines.|
