Mountain biodiversity portal

The mountain biodiversity portal is a project of GMBA in collaboration with Global Biodiversity Information Facility GBIF.

You can now explore GBIFs biodiversity data for the mountains of the world virtually on an interactive map, and search mountain areas from region to globe, or select mountain life zones by range of elevation or thermal belts. Mountain areas are defined by ruggedness of terrain, using WORLDCLIM digital elevation data.

You are welcome to visit the Portal at www.mountainbiodiversity.org or to see a demo video
