Response-curves of the variables. a American cutaneous leishmaniasis model (ACLM). b Lutzomyia (N.) whitmani model (LWM). Normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), annual precipitation (AP, BIO12), mean temperature of coldest quarter (MTCQ, BIO11), annual mean temperature (AMT, BIO1). These curves show how each environmental variable affects the MaxEnt prediction when all environmental variables are used to build the model
