Quick links

This API is used to retrieve news or publications from or about GBIF.

GBIF news

GBIF provides RSS feeds for all news or the subset relevant to a specific country. These feeds are currently not accessible through the API and are linked from the respective country pages, for example the Spanish news.


GBIF maintains a Mendeley group sharing publications relevant to the Global Biodiversity Information Facility. They are tagged according to whether data accessed via GBIF are used in research, or whether GBIF is discussed/mentioned, as well as subjects covered and countries of contributing authors.
