Description of this data

This dataset represents the likely responses of plant species to ensuing climate change in the Sikkim Himalayan
region. The figures in the dataset for every species represents the individual habitat suitability projections based on Maximum Entropy (MaxEnt) Species Distribution Modelling using MaxEnt ver. 3.3.3k software. The dataset under "Current Climate" category represents the habitat distribution of species in the current climate climate (average climate conditions for the period 1950-2000). The dataset under "2050s" category represents the species habitat projections for the period 2050 (average climate conditions for 2041-2060) and the dataset under "2070s" category represents the habitat distribution of species in 2070 (average climate conditions for 2061-2080). For each future time period (2050s, 2070s) the habitat projections are available for different Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP 2.6, RCP 4.5, RCP 6.0, RCP 8.5). The data for future climate conditions (2050s, 2070s) are based on IPCC Fifth Assessment Report as available from the Worldclim database.
