This dataset is the data and metadata associated with the application of the US-PROPS model to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP). It is a geodatabase of species and vegetation classes across the GSMNP and describes the distribution of species, critical loads of different vegetation classes, and the changes in the occurrence probabilities for different scenarios explored. Users should start with the "Dataset_Descriptions.docx" file, and read McDonnell et al. (2022) for context (
