Research project: Web based modeling of biodiversity distribution in terrestrial environments for conservation planning


Start date:

Museum investigators

Funded by

  • Rio Tinto, University of Florida


Web based data access and analysis is a growing area which will see increasing use of the internet for collaborative research into biodiversity distribution and ecology of organisms. The web based applications necessary for this to occur are as yet in their infancy and the Australian Museum is leading research and development in this area.

Current plans revolve around developing robust and flexible interfaces for web based implementations or Maxent, Biodiverse, and Generalised Dissimilarity Modeling.
