I am wondering if I can use factorial vairables in BIOMOD?
I want to include type of land-use codes as "grassland" or "forest" in
my analysis but get an error message:

Fehler in Summary.factor(c(1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 3L, 3L, 1L, 1L, 1L, 3L,
  sum not meaningful for factors

What can I do about this?

Thnaks in advance!
