Fellow Maria Lumbierres with fellow Prabhat Raj Dahal published a paper entitled Translating habitat class to land cover to map area of habitat of terrestrial vertebrates, co-authored by Moreno di Marco, Stuart H. M. Butchart, Paul F. Donald and Carlo Rondinini.
They developed a data-driven method to translate IUCN Red List Habitat classes to ESA CCI and Copernicus land covers based on point localities of almost 7000 terrestrial vertebrates. The model provided greater standardization, objectivity, repeatability and allowed uncertainty to be quantified when mapping Area of Habitat.
