The Atlas provides detailed information on 105 species or subspecies of wild Guatemalan plants that are related to crops, including their description, distribution, diversity and conservation status. The species are organized into genepools corresponding to the 29 crops that were chosen for this study because of their economic, cultural and biological importance.
ARKive is gathering together the very best films and photographs of the world's species into one centralized digital library, to create a unique audio-visual record of life on Earth, prioritizing those species at most risk of extinction.
Users of the ALA website can combine species distribution information with mapping tools, identification keys, photos, names lists, sensitive data service (coming) and published literature.
