"Earth's Biodiversity Now on Your Desktop"

Category : resources

"Earth's Biodiversity Now on Your Desktop." US National Science Foundation, 2o Apr 2006. Global Web service connects vast networks of primary biodiversity data.

"Anyone in the world with an Internet connection and an interest in the Earth's living species can now access worldwide networks of biodiversity data from his or her desktop, thanks to the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). The world's biodiversity encompasses all living species of plants, animals and organisms on the planet Earth, as well as their genetic variants and the ecosystems in which they live.

With the emergence of the Information Age, scientists and concerned citizens worldwide have advocated for a means to share biodiversity data to encourage sustainable and responsible use of natural resources. The GBIF was established in 2001 with the mission to digitize and disseminate the world's primary biodiversity data via the Internet. The GBIF data portal provides access to information, including images, of the vast array of Earth's living species."
