anthromes_v1Looking for a new view of an old biosphere? Now, you can buy a wall-sized version of our first Anthropogenic Biomes map over at Maps.com. The map includes pictures of different anthromes and is based on the paper “Putting people in the map: Anthropogenic Biomes of the World”. Excellent for classroom use or anywhere else people ponder the planet. (Full disclosure: our lab receive 30% of proceeds).

Note: if you have a large-format printer, you can download and print your own copy for free: http://bit.ly/a_map1 (80MB pdf file!).
