From the RAMAS GIS Help File: Habitat suitability function determines the suitability of a location given various input maps describing environmental variables (see the User Manual). The function is specified in this field, based on input maps. This function is used to calculate the habitat suitability for each location (cell), and describes the contribution of each landscape variable to the suitability of the habitat. The expression can use addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (*), division (/) and several standard mathematical functions. Note that references to map layers (which describe the landscape variables used as an input for the function) must be within brackets. The next two parameters ( Habitat suitability threshold for patches and Neighborhood distance ) determine how the species perceives the patchiness of the habitat. Habitat suitability threshold for patches is the minimum habitat suitability (HS) value (as defined by the HS function) for the species modeled to reproduce. You may think of
