Tools for Biological Survey Planning

A collection of tools that allows users to plan systems of sampling sites, increasing the efficiency of biodiversity monitoring by considering the relationship between environmental and geographic conditions in a region. The options for selecting sampling sites included here differ from other implementations in that they consider the environmental and geographic conditions of a region to suggest sampling sites that could increase the efficiency of efforts dedicated to monitoring biodiversity. The methods proposed here are new in the sense that they combine various criteria and points previously made in related literature; some of the theoretical and methodological bases considered are described in: Arita et al. (2011) , Soberón and Cavner (2015) , and Soberón et al. (2021).
