Title: Maximum habitat suitability map of Sorbus torminalis (2006, FISE, RDS-MHSv0-3-2)

Description

This dataset series shows the Maximum Habitat Suitability (MHS, also known as survivability) map of Sorbus torminalis (raster format: geotiff). The survivability map is provided for Europe (EU28 plus part of other countries within the spatial extent), computed using the FISE harmonised European dataset of taxa presence/absence (based on the integration and harmonisation of the datasets by European National Forestry Inventories; BioSoil; Forest Focus/Monitoring; EUFGIS; GeneticDiversity). The survivability is estimated as the maximum extension of habitat suitability by means of statistical multivariate similarity analysis (Relative Distance Similarity, RDS) of the bio-climatic conditions where the taxon is observed in Europe (RDS Maximum Habitat Suitability, RDS-MHS). Available years: 2006. The maps are available in the Forest Information System for Europe (FISE). FISE is run by the European Commission, Joint Research Centre. See the field Lineage for further information.
