Lifemapper : Modeling of Species Distribution Niche
Entry ID: uklmGARP

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Lifemapper (LM) produces a comprehensive archive of species' geographical
distribution maps. It intends to re-architect the LM species data archive and
update it with models derived from museum data. Therefore, a software package
called DesktopGarp has been developed in order to allow the users to predict
and analyze wild species distributions using GARP algorithm, choosing different
parameters, environmental layers and custom statistical methods. This tool
supports the community ecologists by modeling the a) Ecological niche, b)
Species richness and abundances. Two of the most important concepts from the
community ecology applied to biodiversity.
