Biodiversity Professionals group member Dr. Clinton Jenkins has created a website Biodiversity Mapping dedicated to mapping Earth’s biodiversity.
Renowned for his beautiful maps depicting species diversity of various vertebrate groups, Dr. Jenkins announced the website today. According to the email announcement:
“The site was created to provide easy access to maps and GIS data that summarize patterns of species diversity. Current maps cover three vertebrate groups, the birds, mammals, and amphibians. For each taxa, there are maps of various subdivisions of the species (e.g., threatened, small-ranged, major Orders, etc.). More will be added in the future as time and data become available.
Content on the site is available free for educational and scientific use (i.e., non-commercial). For those interested in using the data in their research, details for an appropriate scientific citation are on the website.
Please do share widely, and feel free to offer suggestions on how to expand and improve the site.”
Please contact Dr. Jenkins through the new website if you have any questions or feedback.
