PSDM will provide accurate and fresh information for the past if:
► model calibration data sets include fossil and current species occurrences.
► absence data is avoided to calibrate the models.
► variables included in the models are biologically meaningful.
► Presence/absence models are avoided to predict the past distribution of species.
