Environmental Distances Between Marine Ecosystems of the World (MEOW) Ecoregions and Ecoprovinces
Posted on 25.08.2021 - 21:47 by Mimi Tzeng
Environmental distance is a measure of the similarity in environmental conditions between two geographic locations (Keller et al. 2011). A low environmental distance value between two locations indicates high environmental similarity. The Marine Ecoregions Of the World (MEOW) biogeographic classification system divides the coastal, nearshore, and shelf areas of the world into a nested hierarchy of 232 ecoregions, 62 ecoprovinces, and 12 ecorealms (Spalding et al. 2007). In this dataset, environmental distances were calculated between each pair of MEOW ecoregions and ecoprovinces, using temperature and salinity data from World Ocean Atlas (2018).
