Description

The Database integrates tree species information from 7484 sites distributed across the Neotropical Biogeographic Region, compiled from1992 to 2017. All this information was extracted from the http://www.neotroptree.info/ website. The database presented here allows easy location and spatial cross-referencing of species and their environmental characteristics, thus we have added a vector database in shapefile format. To merge all the information, the free software Python, R and Qgis were used. This big database will help diverse researchers in the deepening of studies such as, for example, conservation, floristic patterns.
