Demo version of the new Map of Life resource which brings together information about species distribution using a Google Maps-based website.

Specifically you are able to:

  1. Display expert range maps, point occurrence records, records from study areas such as reserves and larger regions. These are shown as layers on maps, and a layer control widget allows you to adjust ordering, visibility, etc .
  2. Retrieve a list of species for the vicinity of any location worldwide using the species list tool. Simply set search radius and group of interest, and right click (control-click on Macs) your mouse button on a point of the map.

This Beta version is the first stage in the Map of Life project. For more information see the project team’s article in Trends in Ecology and Evolution
