NeoTropTree: Tree flora of the Neotropical Region: A database involving biogeography, diversity and conservation.

NeoTropTree, or NTT, is an interactive database originally created in an Access environment and containing tree species checklist prepared for sites distributed across the Neotropical Biogeographic Region. NTT was compiled over 25 years (1992-2017) of work by Ary Oliveira-Filho, a former professor at the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (Belo Horizonte, Brazil), with the purpose of providing data for a number of research projects, most of which focused on floristic patterns and their relationship with environmental and spatial variables. Quite unexpectedly, NTT also ended up supporting studies of rather distinct nature, such as historical biogeography, phylogenetic diversity, niche conservatism and community ecological traits.
