This file contains maps of current and future abundance suitable habitat for 144 invasive plant species in the United States. Each tiff file represents the current or future range prediction maps of habitat suitable for supporting abundant populations (greater than or equal to 5% cover) of 144 invasive plant taxa, projected across the lower 48 States of the United States. Each tiff file is named with the USDA species code (SpCode) (see '1Species_information_Nov15.xlsx' file for full species names), with species codes followed by .2c indicating maps related to future climatic conditions under a +2oC warming scenario. Areas predicted to be climatically suitable for supporting abundant populations is based on model agreement and range from 0 (no models identify that area as suitable) to 15 (all model outputs identify the area as suitable). Values of 300 represent areas that are masked due to climate dissimilarity. See main publication for model fitting details.
