• Statistical and machine learning models trained to predict 3 ecological indicators.
• Human uses, stressors and natural gradients as predictors
• Comparison of prediction errors by double spatial block cross-validation
• Best models captured general trends in spatial distribution of indicators.
• Lessons learned for future research linking ecological indicators to stressors
