A new paper from GECo: MIAT: Modular R-wrappers for flexible implementation of MaxEnt distribution modelling

Sabrina Mazzoni, Rune Halvorsen and Vegar Bakkestuen

We present a new conceptual framework, the Modular and functionally Integrated component-based Approach (MIA) framework for practical distribution modelling by which the core components of the DM process are decoupled and then wrapped together more flexibly into component-based functional modules. We operationalise this framework for MaxEnt by the MIA Toolbox (MIAT), a set of flexible, modular R-scripts (available in supplementary appendices) wrapped around maxent.jar and existing R-functions. MIAT covers the full range of options and settings for the maximum likelihood implementation of MaxEnt and provide flexible guidance of users through the DM process.
