The study shows current state of knowledge and identifies priorities for future studies to fill knowledge gaps.

New paper & Dataset: Area of Habitat maps for the world’s terrestrial birds and mammals
Fellow Maria Lumbierres led the production of Area of Habitat maps for 5,481 terrestrial mammal and 10,651 terrestrial bird species, in collaboration with fellows Prabhat Raj Dahal and Carmen Soria. These maps, now available to the research and conservation communities, will prove invaluable to guide conservation planning and monitoring. The authors then used these Area of Habitat maps to produce global maps of the species richness of mammals, birds, globally threatened mammals and globally threatened birds.
