West Africa Coastal Vulnerability Mapping: Subset of Global Mammal and Amphibian Richness Grids, 2015 Release
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_WACVM_SMAMAMP_RICH_1.0


Summary
Abstract: The West Africa Coastal Vulnerability Mapping: Subset of Global Mammal and Amphibian Richness Grids, 2015 Release was extracted from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC) Gridded Species Distribution collection created from vector data files acquired from the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List collection. Threatened species include any species classified as vulnerable, endangered, or critically endangered. The data represent the density of threatened mammals and amphibians within 200 kilometers of the coast at a one kilometer resolution.

Purpose: To provide areas of higher richness of threatened species which may be at risk from climate stressors in the coastal zone of West Africa.
