The Seminar focuses on central connection between representative species occurrence information and the measurement of diversity and its change.
It will address recent advances in capturing species distributions in a more integrated and detailed way, based on a combination of different data types and remote sensing information. This seminar will illustrate the Map of Life project (http://mol.org) which aims to support this integration and deliver biodiversity information to regional and global stakeholders. The project contributes biodiversity indicators to global assessment and policy processes and supports the development of more representative and sound species distributions for use in research, monitoring, and conservation. At the regional scale, it enables the fine-scale prediction of relevant biodiversity information to support resource management and conservation.
The presentation will chart out the vision of such a Map of Life of the Arabian Peninsula and how it could support environmental decision-making in the region.
