Species richness indicates the number of different species predicted to be able to occur at a location. Maps show the projected species richness under current climate and two models of future climate conditions. Species richness is calculated by summing the maps of predictions from Maxent models across all species. Predictions from the Maxent models are transformed into binary predictions of presence/absence prior to summing.
