Poster: GBIF - enabling unparalleled data access for research

This poster describes GBIF’s role in enabling data access for research.


GBIF offers researchers access to hundreds of millions of records documenting evidence
of the distribution of species over time, all round the planet. A growing body of
peer-reviewed literature mines these data to address the critical scientific questions
relating to conservation and sustainable use of our biological resources.
