Gridded Species Distribution, Version 1: Mammals of the Americas Family Richness Grids
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_SPECIES_MAM_RICH


Summary
Abstract: The Mammals of the Americas Family Richness Grids of the Gridded Species Distribution, Version 1

are aggregations of the presence grids data at the family level. They are available in 30-arc second (1 kilometer) resolutions. The

cell values represent the number of species in a particular family. The input vector layers were produced by a consortium led by

NatureServe. The gridding and grid processing are done by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information

Network (CIESIN).


Purpose: To provide a gridded version of existing vector maps of mammal species aggregations at the

family level at 1- kilometer spatial resolution, which in turn can be used in modeling efforts, wildlife conservation planning,

natural resource management, policy-making, biodiversity studies and human-environment interactions.
