The science team at Botanical Gardens Kew has recently announced the release of an atlas mapping the unique vegetation of Madagascar. The atlas is one of three conservation projects concerning Madagascar that the team at Kew is currently working on, with the other two focusing on conservation of endangered plant species and collecting and preserving seeds of dryland species.
The atlas consists of accurate mapping of vegetation and is recommended for researchers. It also includes valuable information on plants on the verge of extinction. The information is based on satellite image data and ground surveys.
