You can contribute to improve the knowledge about the geographical distribution of the species through the following activities: - Curation of biological records. - Edition of the statistical models developed by the Laboratory of Applied Biogeography. - Documenting the land cover suitable for the species. - Developing expert maps, especially for species that have very few or no biological records. - Participating in the forum of the species to share opinions with other experts. - Qualifying the geographical distribution hypothesis available for the species.LOG IN
If you have developed distribution models for one or more species, you can publish them through BioModelos. This way you can make your work visible and facilitate its use by other researchers, as well as receive feedback from experts on the performance of your models. Find more. You just have to be a registered user in BioModelos, click the "Publish" link and follow the instructions.PUBLISH
The Plos One magazine, focused on research topics associated with science and medicine, dedicates some pages to our BioModelos digital platform, with the article “BioModelos: A collaborative online system to map species distributions”, where it addresses the crucial contribution of this type of information for biodiversity conservation and management. It also highlights the considerable allocation of resources to increase the quantity and availability of data, which increases its use and dissemination.
