Graphics

A goal of the Atlas project is to illustrate natural patterns: how species compare to each other, how they are grouped into communities and landscapes, and how the communities and landscapes work. To do this, we create maps, diagrams, drawings, and photomontages. Some are stand-alone products, others are drafts of illustrations that will eventually be combined with others or used in books.

To see a larger version of any of the graphics, click the image or the title and then zoom with control + or command +. To zoom farther (necessary on the large charts!), click the image again to open it in a separate window. To see all the charts of a particular type, click an entry in the index.

The versions shown on this page are medium resolution jpegs or svgs for use on screen. The files, especially for the complex posters are pretty big and may take a while to load. They may be downloaded without permission for educational and non-commercial use. For commercial use, please contact us.

High-resolution pdf versions of all these graphics, suitable for printing, are available for download on the Products page. They are free for educational and noncommercial use.
