Abstract

The primary aim of the research in this thesis was to identify and quantify uncertainty associated with model predictions of species distributions. The major research question was, why do different models give dissimilar predictions for the same species and/or location? Discrepancy among model results is one of the major issues that affects the perception of their reliability and their capacity to inform policy decisions. In this thesis, the effect of factors considered to influence model performance and drive uncertainty in model predictions, was investigated.
