To support the ecological model of the study Rodríguez et al. (2020, in review), five BIOCLIM variables (BIO1, BIO6, BIO10, BIO11) were computed from the Oscillayers dataset, for 11 subdivisions of the Marine Isotope Stages MIS 14 to MIS 11, as defined in (Rodríguez et al 2020, in review).
Oscillayers is a global‐scale and region‐specific BIOCLIM paleoclimatic datasets with high temporal resolution spanning the Plio‐Pleistocene, facilitating the study of climatic oscillations during the last 5.4 million years at high spatial (2.5 arc‐minutes) and temporal (10 kyr time periods) resolution (Gamisch, 2019).
BIOCLIM is a model designed for Species Distribution Modelling (SDM) that defines a set of 19 bioclimatic variables derived from monthly temperature and rainfall values in order to obtain biologically meaningful variables that are commonly used in ecology to model species or biome distributions (Booth et al., 2014; Nix, 1986).
The GIS computation was conducted using GRASS GIS map algebra (Shapiro & Westervelt, 1991) scripted via its Python API. The according Python scripts are attached to this dataset.
