Menz sheep temperature similarity in Ethiopia
MetadataShow full item record
This map was prepared for Livestock and fish CRP project for Mapping breeds to appropriate production environments: a case study of Ethiopian indigenous sheep and goats. Menz sheep temperature similarity in Ethiopia at 30 arc-second (about 1 km) resolution. Similarity in temperature patterns were calculated using a Visual Basic program (climatic similarity) developed in ICARDA. temperature similarity index is a distance function for air temperature draw inspiration from the ‘Match Index’ concept developed in the CLIMEX software. The temperature of both the breed distribution areas and areas outside was obtained from WorldClim 2.0 (Hijmans et al., 2005a).
