Glossary for Trachypithecus poliocephalus
- Actual evapotranspiration rate in geographic range
- Monthly AET (Actual Evapotranspiration Rate) within the geographic range of a taxon. Evapotranspiration (ET) is the sum of evaporation and plant transpiration from the Earth's land surface to atmosphere.
- Arboreal habitat
- A habitat in or on trees.
- Behavioral circadian rhythm
- Any measurable or observable behavioral characteristic related to a daily biological activity cycle.
- Naturally formed, subterranean open area or chamber.
- Conservation status
- Critically endangered
- A taxon is Critically Endangered when the best available evidence indicates that it meets any of the criteria A to E for Critically Endangered, and it is therefore considered to be facing an extremely high risk of extinction in the wild
- Decimal degrees
- Decimal degrees (DD) express latitude and longitude geographic coordinates as decimal fractions. The values are bounded by ±90° and ±180° respectively. Positive latitudes are north of the equator, negative latitudes are south of the equator. Positive longitudes are east of Prime Meridian, negative longitudes are west of the Prime Meridian. (Wikipedia)
- Degrees Celsius
- Active during the day
- This taxon is still in existence, as opposed to extinct.
- Extinction status
- Indicates whether a taxon is extant (living today) or extinct.
- An area with a high density of trees. A small forest may be called a wood.
- Geographic range (area)
- The total extent of the geographic range of an organism.
- A category or description of the habitat in which the Event occurred.
- A rounded elevation of limited extent rising above the surrounding land with local relief of less than 300m.
- Human population density
- The human population density within the geographic range of a taxon.
- Human population density change
- Rate of increase in human population density within the geographic range of a species.
- Individuals per square kilometer
- A unit of population density.
- A feature shaped by the dissolution of a soluble layer or layers of bedrock, usually carbonate rock such as limestone or dolomite. These landscapes display distinctive surface features and underground drainages, and in some examples there may be little or no surface drainage.
- Square kilometre, symbol km^2, is a decimal multiple of the SI unit of surface area, the square metre, one of the SI derived units. 1 km^2 is equal to: 1,000,000 m^2, 100 ha (hectare) (Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Square_kilometre&oldid=566625931)
- Latitude is a geographic coordinate which refers to the angle from a point on the Earth's surface to the equatorial plane
- A sedimentary rock composed largely of the mineral calcite.
- Longitude is a geographic position that refers to the angle east or west of a reference meridian between the two geographical poles to another meridian that passes through an arbitrary point.
- Millimeters per month
- National park
- A reserve of land, usually, but not always declared and owned by a national government, protected from most human development and pollution. National parks are a protected area of IUCN category II.
- Nature reserve
- A protected area of importance for wildlife, flora, fauna or features of geological or other special interest, which is reserved and managed for conservation and to provide special opportunities for study or research. Nature reserves may be designated by government institutions in some countries, such as the United Kingdom, or by private landowners, such as charities and research institutions, regardless of nationality.
- Population trend
- Potential evapotranspiration rate in geographic range
- Monthly PET (Potential Evapotranspiration Rate) within the geographic range of a taxon. Evapotranspiration (ET) is the sum of evaporation and plant transpiration from the Earth's land surface to atmosphere. Potential evapotranspiration (PET) is a representation of the environmental demand for evapotranspiration and represents the evapotranspiration rate of a short green crop, completely shading the ground, of uniform height and with adequate water status in the soil profile. It is a reflection of the energy available to evaporate water, and of the wind available to transport the water vapour from the ground up into the lower atmosphere.
- Precipitation in geographic range
- Monthly precipitation within the geographic range of a taxon.
- Natural freshwater surface streams of considerable volume and a permanent or seasonal flow, moving in a definite channel toward a sea, lake, or another river; any large streams, or ones larger than brooks or creeks, such as the trunk stream and larger branches of a drainage system.
- Temperature in geographic range
- Monthly temperature within the geographic range of a taxon.
- Terrestrial biome
- A biome that applies to the terrestrial realm.
- Terrestrial habitat
- A habitat that is on or at the boundary of the surface of the Earth.
