ecospat.ESM.responsePlot {ecospat}R Documentation

Produce response plots for ESMs

Description

This function creates response plots (evaluation strips) for Ensmebles of Small Models (ESMs).

Usage

    ecospat.ESM.responsePlot( ESM.EnsembleModeling.output,
                              ESM.modeling.output,
                              fixed.var.metric = 'median')

Arguments

ESM.modeling.output

a list object returned by ecospat.ESM.Modeling

ESM.EnsembleModeling.output

a list object returned by ecospat.ESM.EnsembleModeling

fixed.var.metric

either 'median' (default), 'mean', 'min' or 'max' specifying the statistic used to fix as constant the remaining variables when the predicted response is estimated for one of the variables. (same as in response.plot2

Details

This function plots the response curves of a model for each variable, while keeping the remianing variables constant. This is an adaptation of the Evaluation Strip method proposed by Elith et al.(2005)

Value

A plot of the response curves is produced (red line Ensemble, grey lines single algorithms) and a list with the output is provided.
