Mapping and Geospatial Imagery: Vegetation Maps

Vegetation Maps

Vegetation Maps show themes of plant vegetation and related topics.  A large collection, the Küchler Vegetation Map Collection is available. The collection was compiled by plant geographer, A.W. Küchler.  Many of these maps are listed in his multivolume International Bibliography of Vegetation Maps. All regions of the world are represented. Recently added and acquired maps supplement this collection.  These maps are listed in the Libraries Catalog.  Search by keyword or subject, using phytogeography or other term, the name of the region, country or locality, and maps.  For example, here are results for a keyword search, Phytogeography India Maps.  Use of these maps is by appointment with the Maps Librarian.
