Abstract

Aim Species distribution models are invaluable tools in biogeographical, ecological and applied biological research, but specific concerns have been raised in relation to different modelling techniques in terms of their validity. Here we compare two fundamentally different approaches to species distribution modelling, one based on simple occurrence data where the lack of an ecological
framework has been criticized, and the other firmly based in socio-ecological theory but requiring highly detailed behavioural information that is often limited
in availability.
