Transcript of "Wwf ecoregions of texas and malaysia"

  1. 1. WWF Ecoregions of Texas and Malaysia<br />Dr. Mark McGinley<br />Fulbright Visiting Scholar<br />Institute of Biological Sciences<br />University of Malaya<br />
  2. 2. Ecoregions<br />According to WWF<br />“an ecoregion is a relatively large unit of land that contains geographically distinct assemblage of natural communities with boundaries that approximate the original extent of natural communities prior to major land use change.” <br />
  3. 3. Ecoregions<br />Ecoregions<br />share a large majority of their species and ecological dynamics; <br />share similar environmental conditions, and; <br />interact ecologically in ways that are critical for their long-term persistence. <br />http://www.eoearth.org/article/Ecoregions_of_the_world_(WWF)<br />
  4. 4. WWF Ecoregions<br />Divided the earth into eight “biogeographic realms”<br />Australasia<br />Neotropic<br />Antarctic<br />Aftrotropic<br />Oceania<br />Indo-Malayan<br />Nearctic<br />Palearctic<br />
  5. 5. WWF Ecoregions<br />WWF has identified 867 terrestrial ecoregions across the earth!!<br />Within a biogeographic realm these ecoregions are organized in “community types.”<br />
