World atlas of biodiversity : earth's living resources in the 21st century by Brian Groombridge( Book )
10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 820 libraries worldwide
A web site from the United Nations Environment Programmes World Conservation Monitoring Center (UNEP-WCMC). Like other GIS-based programs, the features of this Web site can be useful in demonstrating spatial patterns of environmental problems. Users can choose from dozens of map layers (derived from biodiversity and related data) to superimpose on geographical maps of the planet on a global, regional, or even local scale. Manipulating the maps is relatively straightforward. For example, to explore the correlation between human population density and bird extinctions in North America, drag a box around the continent, select Human Population Density and Bird Extinctions from the map layer mother features. Users should note that the graphics can make this site very slow to load, and no maps are currently available for the categories Diversity of Organisms and Biodiversity Through Time
