Map Description:
This map shows the distribution of languages in the Epena district in the Likouala Region of the People's Republic of the Congo, for the places and languages mentioned in Gardner (2006) that were possible to find coordinates for in the National Geospatial intelligence Agency's online database.

The Gardner (2006) paper is based on two language surveys conducted in 1988 and 1989.

The map also contains vegetation data from shapefiles assembled at the the University of Maryland (based on Descoings 1969).
