attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String The large databases of EMODNET Biology only store confirmed presences of species. However, when mapping species distribution, it is also important where the species did not occur: there is at least as much information in absences as in presences. Inferring absences from presence-only databases is difficult and always involves some guesswork. In this product we have used as much meta-information as possible to guide us in inferring absences.
