Global Potential Distribution of Bactrocera carambolae and the Risks for Fruit Production in Brazil

PLoS One
PMCID: 5104352
PMID: 27832144
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0166142

[…] cords of confirmed presences of B. carambolae were obtained from the literature, as well as from online databases such as the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF, http://www.gbif.org/) and SpeciesLink (http://splink.cria.org.br/). When geo-referenced localities were not available (only locality names), geographic coordinates were obtained with the software Google Earth. Overall, 51 uniq […]


Relation between Water Balance and Climatic Variables Associated with the Geographical Distribution of Anurans

PLoS One
PMCID: 4607303
PMID: 26469787
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0140761
call_split See protocol

[…] Geographical coordinates of occurrence for each species were compiled from the speciesLink Project (– Figs) []. For each coordinate, mean data from 1950 to 2000 on eight climatic variables (annual mean temperature, maximum temperature of the warmest month, minimum temperature of […]


A global perspective on decadal challenges and priorities in biodiversity informatics

BMC Ecol
PMCID: 4467596
PMID: 26022532
DOI: 10.1186/s12898-015-0046-8

[…] % of that total is currently accessible via GBIF, the largest aggregator of specimen records. Although smaller-scale initiatives provide access to additional specimen records (an excellent example is speciesLink, http://www.splink.org.br/), the bulk of the data associated with the world’s biocollections remain inaccessible to biodiversity science.The causes for this lack of progress in digitizatio […]


Morphological analyses suggest a new taxonomic circumscription for Hymenaea courbaril L. (Leguminosae, Caesalpinioideae)

PMCID: 4086212
PMID: 25009440
DOI: 10.3897/phytokeys.38.7408

[…] ates recorded on the herbarium sheet labels. For material lacking original coordinates, a central coordinate for the municipality was used as provided by the Species Link website (available at http://specieslink.org.br ).Species limits were tested following the USC framework (, ). Species ranks were ascribed to groups that showed morphological and habitat distinctiveness and geographical consisten […]
