Exploring Natural Capital Opportunities, Risks and Exposure (ENCORE)

&
ENCORE (Exploring Natural Capital Opportunities, Risks and Exposure) is a tool to help users better understand and visualise the impact of environmental change on the economy. By focusing on the goods and services that nature provides to enable economic production, its guides users in understanding how business across all sectors of the economy potentially depend and impact on nature, and how these dependencies and impacts might represent a business risk if environmental degradation continues.

Mean Sea Surface Productivity in December 2003-2007

F. Kershaw
This dataset shows mean global sea surface Net Primary Productivity (NPP) values for the month of December, averaged for the period from 2003 to 2007. They were created using data from Oregon State University's Ocean Productivity database (www.science.oregonstate.edu/ocean.productivity).

Mean Sea Surface Productivity in June 2003-2007

F. Kershaw
This dataset shows mean global sea surface Net Primary Productivity (NPP) values for the month of June, averaged for the period from 2003 to 2007. They were created using data from Oregon State University's Ocean Productivity database (www.science.oregonstate.edu/ocean.productivity).

Global Distribution of Cold-water Corals

Andre Freiwald, Alex Rogers, Jason Hall-Spencer, John M. Guinotte, Andrew J. Davies, Chris Yesson, Corinne Martin & Lauren V. Weatherdon
This dataset shows of the global distribution of cold-water corals. Occurrence records are given for the subclass Octocorallia (octocorals; also known as Alcyonaria) and four Orders (in Class Anthozoa): Scleractinia (reef-forming corals), Antipatharia (black corals), Zoanthidae (encrusting or button polyps), and Pennatulacea (sea pens). Occurrence records are also available for the order sub-Order Filifera (lace corals) in Class Hydrozoa.

Global Distribution of Mangroves USGS

Chandra Giri, Enos Ochieng, Larry L. Tieszen, Zhiliang Zhu, A. Singh, Thomas Loveland, Jeffrey G. Masek & Norman Duke
The dataset was created using Global Land Survey (GLS) data and the Landsat archive. Approximately 1,000 Landsat scenes were interpreted using hybrid supervised and unsupervised digital image classification techniques. See Giri et al. (2011) for full details.

Global Soybean Trade – The Geopolitics of a Bean

Marcello De Maria, Elizabeth Robinson, Joseph Rajabu Kangile, Reuben MJ Kadigi, Ilda Dreoni, Matheus Couto, Niko Howai, Jurgen Peci & Sicily Fiennes
This report, which is the result of collaborative effort within the Trade Hub project, explores the multiplicity of issues associated with the so-called ‘soybean miracle’, both from a global and a local perspective. With a comprehensive review of the available literature and data, and with country-specific summaries for Tanzania, Brazil and China, this study retraces the historical moments that contributed to make soybean a ‘global flexible crop’, increasingly appreciated and demanded for its versatility all...

Forest Biodiversity Intactness Index (fBII)

A global map of the impacts of forest management on biodiversity intactness, defined as the average abundance of originally-present species relative to an intact ecosystem.

Natural and Modified Habitat Screening Layer

Joe Gosling, Matt I. Jones, Andrew Arnell, Oscar Venter, James E.M. Watson, Andrea C. Baquero & Neil D. Burgess
This dataset classifies the global terrestrial land surface into one of four categories: likely Natural, potential Natural, potential Modified, and likely Modified. The dataset use freely available data layers in combination to develop a new global layer that identifies natural and modified habitat. It is aligned with the definitions of natural and modified habitat from the highly influential Performance Standard 6 (PS6) of the International Finance Corporation (IFC). However, we propose this layer as an...

Global Seagrass Species Richness

Edmund P. Green & Frederick T. Short
This dataset shows the global distribution of seagrass species richness, or global seagrass biodiversity.

Global Critical Habitat Screening Layer

This screening layer shows the global spatial distribution of likely or potential Critical Habitat, as defined by the International Finance Corporation's Performance Standard 6 (IFC PS6) criteria. The composite Critical Habitat layer draws on 20 global-scale datasets, of which 12 datasets support screening of Critical Habitat in the terrestrial realm and 15 datasets support screening in the marine realm. Datasets were disaggregated into subsets if the underlying attributes aligned with different Critical Habitat criteria. The...

Global Distribution of Seagrasses

& Frederick T. Short
This dataset shows the global distribution of seagrasses, and is composed of two subsets of point and polygon occurence data. The data were compiled by UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre in collaboration with many collaborators (e.g. Frederick Short of the University of New Hampshire), organisations (e.g. the OSPAR Convention for the Northeast Atlantic sea), and projects (e.g. the European project Mediterranean Sensitive Habitats "Mediseh"), across the globe (full list available in "Metadata_Seagrass.dbf").
