Experiments

Primary Experiments

Primary experiments model your species under current conditions. The outputs of these models are then used as input into secondary experiments.

Multispecies Distribution Model

In the BCCVL, the Multispecies Distribution Model (MSDM) experiment is used to investigate the potential distribution of multiple species under current climatic conditions. You can run a SDM on many species in the one experiment and then easily feed the result into... read more

Species Trait Model

This experiment is currently under development. Check back for updates shortly! Used to model species distribution as a response to both traits and environmental variables. Allows researchers to ascertain how the occurrence of species in a particular location is... read more

Secondary Experiments

Secondary experiments allow you to build on your existing models. Before running a secondary experiment you must first run at least one primary experiments to be used as input.

Climate Change Projection

In the BCCVL, the Climate Change projection experiment is used to investigate the distribution of a species under potential future climatic conditions. Users can select from one of several emissions scenarios and climate models.   Watch Module 9 from our Online... read more

Biodiverse Analysis

Biodiverse is a system to compute indices of biodiversity. This experiment type is based on Associate Professor Shawn Laffan’s Biodiverse software which is a free tool for the spatial analysis of diversity using indices based on taxonomic, phylogenetic and... read more

Ensemble Analysis

In the BCCVL the Ensemble Analysis experiment is used to reduce the uncertainty of using the single-model, or single-emissions-scenario approach to investigating species distributions. This experiment is most commonly used in two different ways: 1) Synthesising the... read more
