Selva Zoque (SZ) represent the most northern distribution of
The SZ has been classified as a biodiversity hotspot (CEPF, 2004). Since
1998 PRONATURA AC-Veracruz and its partners have created geographic
information for biodiversity conservation.
However, data are not available to the general public.
Given the variety of actors and participants in the process profiles, the
results are very different as to focus and geographical scale.
It has maps on prioritization of areas based on key species and species
accumulation, analysis to explain and model the processes of fragmentation
and other threats to biodiversity in terms of land use and maps of
terrestrial ecosystems on
basis of the approach geoecological landscape ecology.
This project proposes the concept and spatial integration of these
approaches and data already generated by using as template IABIN support.
Existing maps ranging from 000 to 1:250 scale detailed mapping of key
biodiversity areas generated 1:30 000.
The ultimate goal is to provide a common platform in a geographic
information system accessible to the public.
