It provides additional information about all the species in a graph type I personally don’t think shows the data very clearly, but it does use a nice way to show the years by default that change to values when the user hovers over the graph:Screen Shot 2015-03-29 at 10.02.51 PM > Screen Shot 2015-03-29 at 10.03.12 PM

For those who want to know more on how it’s done: there’s a link at the bottom of the individual species pages.

Also note the species can be downloaded individually as wall papers.
