Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute (ABMI)

monitors species and their habitats to understand distribution of biodiversity and to inform sustainable resource development and biological conservation in Alberta.

Single species

We provide informaion on spatial distribution, habitat associations, responses to human footprint, and predicted relative abundance distributions for 2285 species in Alberta, including mammals, birds, soil mites, vascular plants, bryophytes, and lichens.

Multiple species

Results on individual species are combined to highlight how groups of similar species respond to environmental variation. We provide information on intactness, richness, uniqueness, and guilds.


We provide information on native vegetation edge, mesh size, and human footprint change in Alberta.
