    簡介:

    Abstract: In this webinar we will describe the research goals and computational capabilities of Lifemapper software. The Lifemapper platform takes as input georeferenced point data of known species occurrences based on biological museum specimens and observations of species in the wild. Lifemapper generates predicted species distribution models or suitable habitat models for plants and animals based on correlations between distributions documented by specimens, and environmental data layers such as climate, substrates, and vegetation cover. In addition the Project computes multi-species distribution models for regions or continents into data structures known as presence-absence matrices which are then used to compute various biodiversity indices and statistics. These derived products are also useful for analyzing the relative contribution of historic biogeography and phylogeny on patterns of species diversity found in any particular area, region, or island.
