Future climatic suitability of native tree species in restoration sites in Northwestern Ecuador Barragán, Gabriela; Wang, Tongli; Rhemtulla, Jeanine


Climatic suitability of 10 tree species in 1237 restoration sites in Northwest Ecuador under baseline climatic conditions (1960-1990) and two climate scenarios (RCP 4.5 and 8.5) in the 2030s, 2050s, and 2070s. We built bioclimatic niche models to obtain the climatic suitability values for the species at each restoration site. The suitability values ranged from 0 (unsuitable) to 1 (suitable). Suitability thresholds (i.e., MaxSS, MTP, 10% TP) per species are provided to categorize species as "suitable" or "unsuitable" at the restoration sites. We used this dataset on species climatic suitability in restoration sites to assess the species climatic viability (i.e., persistance over time). Obtain further detail on this dataset's content in the file "AA_README.txt" in English, or "AA_README_Español.txt" in Spanish. Geographical data on the restoration sites location is not publicly available due to privacy restrictions from the government of Ecuador under the permit (MAE-SG-2018-6447-E).
