The GBIF Science Review provides an annual snapshot of key research uses drawn from the Secretariat’s literature tracking programme. The peer-reviewed articles summarized in Review offer a partial but instructive view of the wide range of research investigations that are enhanced and supported by free and open access to biodiversity data from the GBIF network of Participants, nodes and publishers.
Science Review No. 10
Inside this compendium, you’ll find new selection of 50 summaries of recent GBIF-enabled research. With almost five peer-reviewed papers published every day whose findings are based on data from the GBIF network, both you and our communications team has a wider range of examples to review and explore than ever.
Science Review No.10 also includes a feature section on research into invasive alien species (IAS), long one of the most frequent use cases for GBIF-mediated data. Watch this space, as they say: with the release of the latest IPBES thematic assessment on IAS this year, the GBIF community—including a new task group on invasives—will coordinate work to fill the data gaps it has identified.
