Species richness

Below are two synthetic maps that present the species richness within the region based respectively on the 25 marine mammal species included in the project, and on three species that were selected (namely humpback whales, bottlenose dolphins, and sperwhales). Each map displays the species richness using geographic cells and the probability, given the individual occurence maps, of having a given number of species in a given cell.

NB : no factsheet is attached to the maps, as the method is summarized directly on the maps in both cases
