Predicted suitability for Rhaponticum repens within the eastern sage region (green region in Fig. 1) from models trained using data from the A Eastern sage B Great Basin C Great Plains D All sage, and E the continental U.S. (CONUS) (training regions shown in Fig. 1). Maps (A–E) show ensembled model predictions, defined as the number of models predicting suitable habitat; F shows training and test data for Rhaponticum repens within Eastern sage; test data were withheld from estimation of all models and used to create consistent performance assessment sets for each species and region.
