Macroecology

  1. Reading, projecting and saving a shapefile in R: most ranges are distributed as shapefiles, so we should be able to read them and project them as we need them.
  2. Extract spatial data from polygons: Being able to read shapefiles allows us to extract area for ranges and much more than that.
  3. Produce species richness maps. That's why it all started a while ago. Mean while there are alternatives. Some of them I shall explore here soon.
  4. Check-out also package rangeMapper, written by my colleague Mihai Valcu.
  5. Mapping attributes. Currently being updated.
