<< Greeting all, does anyone have any idea of where I can find a map of
relative species abundances for the US? I am not sure what the term is for
the map that I am looking for but I just want to see the relative diversity
throughout the different areas of the country. I have seen maps before for
coral species around the world which show different colors or shading for
different numbers of species in a given area. Thanks.

There are several maps in a book put out by the Nature Conservancy called
Precious Heritage, published in 2000 by Oxford Press. I'll forward this to my
wife, Peggy. She has other sources I've seen but can't recall where they were
