Abstract

Here we present the models of 103 threatened vertebrates (Anphibia, Reptile, Birds and Mammals) from the Cerrado in Brazil and all information about spatial distribution of private and public conservation protected areas that is a part of an article about the value of private areas to conservation.

Methods

Species distribution data was fitted based on the most recent occurrence database and using the ENMTML R-package. We use the 19 climatic data from WORDCLIM, four different algorithms for fit, and control for overprediction using M-SDM techniques.

Distribution of private areas was rasterized from the original shapefile data from the CAR (Cadastro Ambiental Rural) of Brazil. So, the information in each cell is the area of each category of private land in the cell. Distribution of conservation units follows the same reasoning. 

Usage notes

All data was developed and produced using R, specifically the library "raster."
