Abstract

A GIS application of the program ArcView 3.1 is presented that creates potential plant distribution maps based on data from georeferenced specimen data bases. The application makes use of the relationship between species distribution and environmental parameters such as altitude, humidity, or temperature, to predict a taxon's potential distribution. The application contains tools for modification and further refinement of basic maps.
