GBIF's partners

GBIF is in itself a collaboration of many partner institutions and individuals, focussed primarily on its network of Participants, including national node institutions and Associate Participant Organizations, and its many data publishers around the world. In addition, GBIF aims for efficient implementation of its work programme through a number of formal partnerships and collaborations at global level, with institutions and initiatives involved in common aims and objectives. A list of current partnerships and affiliations, including a brief description of GBIF's role is given below.
