Many species are adversely affected by increasing human pressures at large spatial scales and their conservation requires detailed information on distributions. Intensive ground surveys cannot keep pace with the rate of land use change over large areas and new methods are needed for regional scale mapping to reach decision makers and target adequate policies. A discussion is expected based on some concrete examples and data issues
