Predicting Landscapes from Environmental Conditions Using Generative Networks [article]

Christian Requena-Mesa, Markus Reichstein, Miguel Mahecha, Basil Kraft, Joachim Denzler
2019 arXiv   pre-print
Here, we ask whether landscapes, as seen from space, can be statistically predicted from pertinent environmental conditions.  ...  Landscapes are meaningful ecological units that strongly depend on the environmental conditions.  ...  We aim to demonstrate that it is possible to predict landscapes -as seen from space-that behave as real for hypothetical environmental conditions.  ...

Impact of landscape predictors on climate change modelling of species distributions: a case study with Eucalyptus fastigata in southern New South Wales, Australia

2010 Journal of Biogeography  
Recognition of extensive optimal habitat conditions and potential refugia was dependent on the use of high-resolution landscape data.  ...  Aim We consider three questions.

Towards a coherent philosophy for modelling the environment

K. Beven
2002 Proceedings of the Royal Society A  
A new approach arising out of the concept of equifinality of models (structures and parameter sets) in application is outlined in the form of an uncertain "landscape space" to model space mapping.  ...  The possibility of hypothesis testing within this framework is proposed as a means of refining the mapping, with a focus on the differentiation of function within the model space.  ...  Earlier versions of the manuscript have been improved as a result of many comments and suggestions, particularly from Rodger Grayson, Rob Lamb, Adam Morton, and Thorsten Wagener, but any inconsistencies  ...

The influence of stochasticity, landscape structure and species traits on abundant–centre relationships

Tad A. Dallas, Luca Santini
2020 Ecography  
We simulate a species spreading across a set of replicated artificial landscapes to examine the expected level of support for abundant-centre relationships in geographic and niche space.  ...  Our results suggest that even in carefully constructed artificial landscapes designed to demonstrate abundant-centre dynamics, the incorporation of small amounts of demographic stochasticity, environmental  ...  One clear example is the incorporation of environmental stochasticity, as most natural systems have temporally varying climatic conditions.  ...
