Millennium Ecosystem Assessment: MA Ecosystems
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_MA_ECOSYSTEMS_1.0


Summary
Abstract: The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment: MA Ecosystems provides data and information on the extent and classification of ecosystems circa 2000, including coastal, cultivated, forest and woodlands, inland water bodies, islands, marine, mountains (elevation), polar, and urban. The data set also includes socioeconomic reporting units and the location of regional MA projects. The data were used in a number of different ways in the assessment, contributing to an understanding of how humans have altered ecosystems, how changes in ecosystem services have affected human well-being, and how ecosystem changes may affect people in future decades.

Purpose: To preserve access to the original biodiversity data used by the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA) and other related research.
