    Nice job Hannah. I can’t believe you were able to capture the fish distribution and ecological data for all the time slices. Good detective work adn data synthesis! Have you followed the TNC NAMERA work in the same area? See


    Well done,

    Extremely clear Hannah! Congratulations. I wonder whether it could be possible to use some real data? This may increase the punch of your presentation.

    Fine presentation, excellent poster. Congratulations on a clear explanation of niche modeling and its potential for understanding the impacts of climate change on various species. We’ll look forward to your niche modeling short course this summer at Haskell Indian Nations University climate change Institute.

    Nice explanation of niche modeling. Is this something that is widely used?

    Hannah, I understand Jorge’s position, but in such a limited amount of time, focusing on your two methods kept the video concise, and by extension, simple and straightforward. For those of us outside the field, that clarity was helpful. Excellent job.

    Great presentation, Hannah! Your descriptions of ecological niche modeling and MESS are clear and accessible to a broad audience, and your project is novel and exciting.
