Ecological niche modelling (ENM) Components are a set of reusable workflow components specialized for performing ENM tasks within the Taverna workflow management system. Each component encapsulates specific functionality and can be combined with other components to facilitate the creation of larger and more complex workflows. One key distinguishing feature of ENM Components is that most tasks are performed remotely by calling web services, simplifying software setup and maintenance on the client side and allowing more powerful computing resources to be exploited. This paper presents the current set of ENM Components in the context of the Taverna family of tools for creating, publishing and sharing workflows. An example is included showing how the components can be used in a preliminary investigation of the effects of mixing different spatial resolutions in ENM experiments.
