[Biomod-commits] Comparison among variable importance

Dear list,
I would like to know if you can directly compare among different models the
variable importance of each variable selected?
My guess is not, because when I got the importance of each variable (
getModelsVarImport()), the sum of all of them for each model was not = 1.
I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or there is another way to
"standardise" the output from getModelsVarImport() and thus compare
throughout models ?
