Ocean Biogeographic Information System Spatial Ecological Analysis of Megavertebrate Populations

OBIS-SEAMAP, Ocean Biogeographic Information System Spatial Ecological Analysis of Megavertebrate Populations, is a spatially referenced online database, aggregating marine mammal, seabird, sea turtle and ray & shark observation data from across the globe.

OBIS-SEAMAP is aimed at augmenting our understanding of the distribution and the ecology of marine mammals, seabirds, sea turtles and rays & sharks by the following approaches:

  • Quantify the global patterns of marine species distribution and biodiversity
  • Design and implement standard databases and innovative sampling techniques
  • Emphasize time series / comparative studies
  • Facilitate study of status and impacts on threatened species
  • Enhance ability to test hypotheses about biogeographic and biodiversity models
  • Support modeling of shifting species distributions in response to environmental change
