  1. Test points were used to evaluate omission and 10,000 background points were used to evaluate commission. The reported test omission rate is for equal sensitivity and specificity. The percent contribution of each variable to the models reflects the increase in regularized gain when added to the contribution of the corresponding variable. P-values are for t-test results for the comparison between positive coyote points and negative coyote points (compared by Maxent prediction).
