Title:
Evaluating the performance of habitat models for predicting the environmental flow requirements of benthic macroinvertebrates 
Abstract:
Although various methods are currently available for modelling the habitat preferences of aquatic biota, studies comparing the performance of data-driven habitat models are limited. In this study, we assembled a benthic-macroinvertebrate microhabitat-preference dataset and used it to evaluate the predictive accuracy of regression-based univariate Habitat Suitability Curves (HSC), Boosted Regression Trees (BRT), Random Forests (RF), fuzzy-logic-based models using the weighted average (FLWA),...    »
