Maxent software for species habitat modeling

The Maxent software is based on the maximum-entropy approach for species habitat modeling. This software takes as input a set of layers or environmental variables (such as elevation, precipitation, etc.), as well as a set of georeferenced occurrence locations, and produces a model of the range of the given species. Maxent is a Java-based application and can be used on any computer running Java version 1.5 or later.

Biodiversity and biogeography of intertidal communities in the Antarctic

Marking the area between the high and low of the tide, the intertidal zone is a distinctive environment with a unique biota, often seen as the ‘canary in the coal mine’ for changes due to climate change in cool regions. This study represents a comprehensive analysis of the biodiversity and biogeography of intertidal communities in the Antarctic and sub-Antarctic regions.
