Structure of the Report
By the selected taxonomic group, family or genus
- The number of species separated into four groups: (i) those without records in the
Virtual herbarium; (II) with 1-5 records; (III) with 6-20 records; and,
(IV) with more than 20 records. This classification aims at showing the potential
for modeling the species distribution (exploratory, preliminary of consistent models)
- The number of species reported as occurring in a given state (List of Species of the
Brazilian Flora), but which have no record in the speciesLink network.
- Hierarchical classification according to the List of Species of the Brazilian Flora
- Conservation Status (Annex I or II MMA and Biodiversitas)
