New regionalized MOL view

Thursday, September 15, 2016

We are excited to announce a new feature to our website! It is now possible to explore the biodiversity in and around a selected region. Users can search for a region and explore which species occur in that area. Regions currently available for exploration include countries as well as states/provinces/territories for larger countries such as the United States, Canada, Australia, and India.

The detailed map further allows users to view what type of data is available in that region for a given species. For example, the Rufous-eyed Brook Frog, Duellmanohyla rufioculis, is an amphibian that is found in Costa Rica.
