Products » Graphics for Download

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.
