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.


Recent and upcoming events

Hello OHI supporters! We haven’t reached out to you for a while but we haven’t been idle! Here let us update you with a few of our most recent activities:


The importance of open data science tools in science: a list of references

Open data science is the combination of open science, data science, and team science. We promote and practice this with the Ocean Health Index by using software tools that make our work transparent, reproducible, and shared publicly online. These concepts are being discussed more and more in the news and in the academic literature. There are so many great articles on these topics that we have started this list, along with a quote from the article to give a sense of its content.
