Anthropogenic Biomes of the World, Version 2: 1900
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_ANTHROMES_v2_1900


Summary
Abstract: The Anthropogenic Biomes of the World, Version 2: 1900 data set describes anthropogenic transformations within the terrestrial biosphere caused by

sustained direct human interaction with ecosystems, including agriculture and urbanization c. 1900. Potential natural vegetation, biomes, such as tropical rainforests or grasslands, are

based on global vegetation patterns related to climate and geology. Anthropogenic transformation within each biome is approximated using population density, agricultural intensity

(cropland and pasture) and urbanization. This data set is part of a time series for the years 1900, 1900, 1900, and 2000 that provides global patterns of historical transformation of the

terrestrial biosphere during the Industrial Revolution.


Purpose: To provide information on anthropogenic transformation of the biosphere c. 1900 for global land use studies and research on human-environment

interactions.
