Double-click on the map to search for species. The results are displayed below.
|Range (geo search)||km|
You can double-click any place on the Google Earth map to search for the EDGE species that live there. The search results will appear below the map panel. You can then click on a result to show the area(s) where that species can be found.
You can also specify a value for the range. This will search for all species living within that range, and it will appear as a circle on the map when you search. Obviously, if you don't want the range, just set it to zero or make the range field empty.
Or you can search by keyword, or by specific criteria, such as taxonomic family or conservation attention, and view the distributions from there.
When you click on one of the search results (which appear below the Google Earth panel), you should see two things happen:
You can use the sort box to order the search results in various different ways.
You can also use the Longitude and Latitude to enter coordinates via the keyboard, rather than double-clicking on the map.
Please note that geographical information is usually only available for the top 100 EDGE, the top ten ED, extinct and 'potential EDGE' (data deficient) species in each group (i.e. top 100 Mammals, top 100 Amphibians, etc.).
