Expected types of data to be involved to the project modelling

The first type of data would be distribution maps that are e.g. based on expert knowledge on where species are present or not, but do not have underlying collection or plot data for specific locations. Yes (i.e. species are present or not on a natural zones, 10-15 years interval), and sometimes -additional type of data i.e. ‘number of presence or absence’
Another type of data would be (georeferenced) presence only data, based on for instance natural collection data (e.g. herbarium specimen) or sightings of animals. In those cases only species presence is measured and explicit absences are missing; because collectors for instance only focus on specific families or genera, and often only collect flowering plants and ignore the other species. Yes (i.e. some the Red Data Book species [dot+number] or some common species of interest of the State Statistics Committee [polygon of administrative unit+ number]
*Dot and polygon both means GIS format
The third type of data are based on inventories (transects or plots) that record all species of a certain species group (plants, trees, mammals, etc) and thus explicitly include absences. Yes (i.e. inventories of expected number of species with ‘translation of the result to ‘language of MSA, or LCCD [Burda, 2005; Prydatko, 2005], and that require RS and GIS data)
New: the fourth type of data that can be based on ‘correlated pleiades’ (Prydatko, Minarchenko, 2005) New: ‘calculated expected number of species’ based on differential equation
