It was a nonsense chart

Also, that one is also completely wrong. Can you figure out why?

Aw fuck it


This map shows the number of tree species present in any location.

Wrong

This map shows the number of endemic tree species present in any location.

Better


This map shows the number of endemic tree species present in any location. Local areas of greater diversity are not shown due to the scale of the map.


Scientific in its description of the graphic

I don't understand how rainfall correlates but being an emperor between 200 and 300 was hazardous.

Perhaps periods of drought correlate with assassinations?

But I imagine it's a spurious correlation
