Data for: Species richness, geographic distribution, pressures, and threats to bats in the Caatinga drylands of Brazil
APPENDIX A1 – Spatial distribution of 8,849 records used for modelling bat species distribution in Brazil. See Methodology for the description of data sources and treatments. APPENDIX A2 – Bioclimatic variables used to generate bat species distribution models in Brazil´s Caatinga. Variables available at the WorldClim database (http://www.worldclim.org). APPENDIX A3 – Number of localities for which there were records of bat species in Brazil´s Caatinga and the respective number of environmental variables and replicates used to run the species distribution models in MaxEnt. APPENDIX A4 – Human Footprint Index for the Caatinga region, in northeastern Brazil. See WCS & SCIESIN (2005) for details on how the index is calculated. Full protected areas (FPA) are in black. APPENDIX A5 – List of bat species recorded in Brazil´s Caatinga. APPENDIX A6 – Distribution modelling of threatened bat species in Brazil´s Caatinga. Seven bat species are officially threatened in Brazil (ICMBio, 2014) and four of them have known records in the Caatinga: Furipterus horrens, Lonchorhina aurita, Natalus macrourus, and Xeronycteris vieirai. Two others (Glyphonycteris behnii and Lonchophylla dekeyseri) are expected to occur based on environmental suitability models, but with no records so far. Full protected areas (FPA) are in black.
