Selected Publications

We use a new algorithm for species distribution modeling, range-bagging, to predict suitable habitat for three potential invasive species: golden mussel, killer shrimp and northern snakehead. We combine global climate data and within lake habitat data to produce specific predictions of high suitability areas in the Great Lakes.
