Calculate the minimal predicted area.
ecospat.mpa (Pred, Sp.occ.xy, perc)
Pred |
Numeric or RasterLayer predicted suitabilities from a SDM prediction. |
Sp.occ.xy |
xy-coordinates of the species (if Pred is a RasterLayer). |
perc |
Percentage of Sp.occ.xy that should be encompassed by the binary map. |
The minimal predicted area (MPA) is the minimal surface obtained by considering all pixels with predictions above a defined probability threshold (e.g. 0.7) that still encompasses 90 percent of the species' occurrences (Engler et al. 2004).
Returns the minimal predicted area.
