CBRAT - Coastal Biodiversity Risk Analysis Tool
This page outputs a table of the thermal suitability of northern unoccupied ecoregions for colonization based on the Biogeographical Thermal Limit approach for the chosen taxon and location using the following instructions: 1. Click on the “Make Abundance Reports” if any of the abundance values have been changed; else it is not necessary to click this button. The update takes about 15 minutes. 2. Click on the “ReCalc Northern Colonization values” if any of the temperature inputs, effect thresholds, or biotic preferences have been changed; else it is not necessary to click this button. It is not necessary to click on the “Make Abundance Reports” before clicking this button. The update may take up to 20 minutes. 3. After completing updates in Step 1 and 2, select the taxonomic rank, taxon group and ecoregion, then click “Generate Results” to generate a CSV file of the thermal suitability of northern ecoregions for colonization.
