Central American primate distributions

I was recently cleaning out files on my computer when I stumbled across some maps that I had created two years ago for a class presentation. These maps show the species distributions for all Central American primates, and they are in vector format so they are high-quality and easy to modify. I have no plans for these images, so I decided to release them here.

Species distribution maps were modified from:
Ford, S.M. 2006. The biogeographic history of Mesoamerican primates, in: Estrada, A., Garber, P.A., Pavelka, M., Luecke, L. (Eds.), New Perspectives in the Study of Mesoamerican Primates. Springer, New York, pp. 81–114.

A PDF version is available for download here. Import into a vector editing program such as Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape to view and modify the species distributions. I also played around with SVG and JavaScript and made the map below interactive. Enjoy!
