The GBIF Science Review provides an annual survey drawn from the Secretariat’s ongoing literature tracking programme, which identifies research uses and citations of biodiversity information accessed through GBIF’s global infrastructure. The peer-reviewed articles summarized in Science Reviews offer a partial but instructive view of research investigations enhanced and supported by free open access data that the GBIF network of members and publishers make available.
