Hi All,

I have a question regarding pseudo-absence selection: Firstly, my data-set consists species presence for 238 bee species in the Netherlands. I have this data in a single table arranged as requested by biomod2.
Am I correct in understanding that if I set PA.nb.rep = 0, biomod2 will then take as pseudo absences only the locations where my focus species is not present but other bee species have been collected?

Also, I have my explanatory variables in Raster format, one of which is a categorical variable (Levels: 10,20,21,30,40,50,60,70,80,98,99):
If I define it as.factor, will biomod then recognize it as such?

##Define raster as factor

Thanks for your help,
