[Biomod-commits] create background data for presence-only data

I would suggest to start by reading the Biomod Manual, it contains
explanations on which functions should be used for generating background
pseudo-absences (i.e. artificial absences when no real absences are
available). It will explain how to use the "pseudo.abs()" function.
For general information about different methods to generate pseudo-absences,
simply search for "pseudo-absences" using scholar.google.com, this will
bring-up plenty of papers on the topic.
In particular there is this paper "Assessing the effects of pseudo-absences
on predictive distribution model performance" by Chefaoui and Lobo (2007,
Ecological Modelling) that should be a good start (then you can also look at
the references cited in that paper).
Hope this helps,
have a nice day,
