Comparing marine species ranges for OHI global assessments

We are excited to have a paper published in PLOS ONE today: “Aligning marine species range data to better serve science and conservation”. In it we examine global maps of nearly 25,000 marine species ranges that are available publicly from the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and AquaMaps. You can read the paper here, or check out our interactive web application where you can explore our results and compare range maps of more than 250 different species.
