These pages are under construction and are being used to break down the data on Habitats and Species Inter-relationships needed for the Future Modules. They are in their very early stages at present, but need to be present for us to ascertain their relationship to other data types.

  • Further information held on each Biome to include Annual Precipitation and Evapotranspiration.
  • Further subdivision to specify detailed habitat types by geographical location (e.g. West Coast North America as c.f. Central Europe)
  • Detailed Habitat types to specify free-living species interrelationships by "primary photosynthetic producers / herbivores / insectivores / carnivores / omnivores - and to specify whether obligate etc.) ", environmental events necessary to maintain environment (e.g. fire / freezing), soil / substrate type (chemical constituents) and physical environment, altitude variations within habitat type.
