Wallace v2.0: Public biodiversity maps summarized for all taxa levels and climate

Wallace 2.0 uses new temperature time-series data for four RCPs provided by the UK Met Office Hadley Centre UK to model the distributions of plants and animals worldwide. Biodiversity summaries were produced at each taxa level (KPCOFGS) of plants and animals in Wallace 2.0. These include areas of concern, refugia, and richness maps.
