New report on biodiversity is an infographics delight

A question that I receive quite often in classes and workshops is how to design better graphics for different kinds of corporate documents. To answer that question I usually refer to good examples. The latest one I've added to my collection is this report on biodiversity in Colombia, developed by the Humboldt institute. In spite of a pie chart here and there, and a few maps that maybe shouldn't be unclassed, it's a visual delight. You won't see any extremely creative visualization in it (that doesn't bother me at all,) but a lot of clean graphics and illustrations on a layout in which white space is used quite wisely. That's more than enough for me!
