Islands of biodiversity digital knowledge on the Atlantic Rainforest and the environmental variables behind them


Biases and gaps are common on biodiversity data, which can have serious consequences on ecological and conservation research and actions, as it can lead to misconstrued hypotheses and incorrect conclusions. This talk was about the incompleteness of digital biodiversity data at the Atlantic Rainforest and which environmental variables are correlated to it.

The time I talked about data bias at the BES annual meeting

Do you think we know more about birds than mammals? Or do we know more about reptiles? Or maybe our knowledge about these groups are correlated? Well, I found that we know way more about birds and mammals than we do about reptiles and amphibians.
