This interactive tool is designed to explore the data in the GrassPlot database. By selecting among the four menus at the top, you can get species richness of different vegetation types, or in biomes, regions, and even countries or for different plot sizes. You can see selected plots on the map using the Map tool. You can get current descriptive statistics of diversity patterns of open habitats in the whole Palaearctic. You can get boxplots for any grain size, habitat type, region, biome, country or combination thereof.
The current version of the GrassPlot Diversity Explorer is based on 118.912 plots (dataset v. 1.35) and will be updated continuously.
