Spanish term or phrase: datos de presencia
Cuál sería la traducción correcta de esta frase, gracias.
MaxEnt es un modelo estadístico utilizado para crear predicciones o inferencias a partir de información incompleta, y estima la distribución de la especie mediante la búsqueda de la distribución probable de máxima entropía (más cercano a los datos de presencia de la especie)
MaxEnt is a statistical model used to create predictions or inferences from incomplete information, and estimates the distribution of the species by finding the likely distribution of maximum entropy (closer to the data of the species) (Phillips et al ., 2006).

See page 174 7.6 "Maximum entropy". The word used is "closest" not "clsoer".

Habitat suitability modeling
Maxent is a general-purpose algorithm for estimating a target probability distribution by finding the probability distribution of
maximum entropy (i.e, closest to uniform) (Phillips et al., 2006).

And I have no idea what you mean re "displacement of the phrase": ......... by determining the likely maximum entropy probability distribution (closest to the species occurrence data). IMO, you don't need "likely" (the Spanish reads: [....] mediante la búsqueda de la distribución probable de máxima entropía (más cercano a los datos de presencia de la especie) which from other questions you have posted should read "....determining the maximum entropy probability distribution (closest to the species occurrence data). "Likely" and "probable" are synonyms. That is how I see it!

traductfree: If you have further questions on this phrase, you need to post it as a new question. It is highly irregular to be answering 3 or 4 questions in one entry. You must open a new query. Saludos.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Gracias, pero en el texto original habla de "la especie", quedará aclarado aqui?

Asker: closer to the species occurrence data

Asker: Thank you for your answer, I have a doubt about the displacement of the phrase: by determining the likely maximum entropy probability distribution (closest to the species occurrence data)

Asker: or it should be: by finding the probability distribution of maximum entropy
