The graph shows the area of effective potential habitat
(km2) for the tiger over time. Landscapes are delineated
in six types: species landscapes (also known as tiger conservation
landscapes or TCLs), species fragments, survey landscapes, survey
fragments, restoration landscapes, and restoration fragments.
Landscapes contain enough area of appropriate vegetation type and
low human footprint score for at least five female tigers to reside
there. Species landscapes are known to have tigers within the 5
years prior to the time point date; survey landscapes may have
tigers but their current state is uncertain; restoration landscapes
are known not to have tigers. Fragments don't have enough connected
area to support even 5 tigers. Click on the "Countries" button to

A note about countries
The country boundaries employed for analytical purposes do not imply
endorsement of any particular claims to sovereignty or territorial
integrity, and do not claim to be definitive for any particular
purpose. For purposes of analysis, we define "country" as any entity
ISO-3166-1 code, as shown here. If different geographies need to be analyzed,
all code is open to inspection, and a
demonstration Earth Engine script is available
for analyzing user-defined geographies.
