Graphics for Conservation

Resource Type: 
Description: 

Graphics for Conservation is a useful resource when thinking about communicating NBSAPs and the importance of biodiversity through maps and data plots: http://scalar.usc.edu/works/graphics-for-conservation/introduction?path=... 

The use of maps and other figures to present data, findings and related information—to help tell a story—is an integral part of writing for conservation and related sciences. A well designed illustration presents information in a way that text cannot. Many authors struggle, however, to prepare publication quality graphics that do justice to their research and conservation work. Graphics for Conservation provides guidance on designing maps and data plots, advice on the wise use of graphics formats, and screencast demonstrations to help with drafting beautiful figures.
