Biodiversity Informatics

NOTICE: Please note that due to scheduled website maintenance, some of our resources will not be available this weekend, from 2pm EDT Saturday until 3pm EDT Sunday. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please check back after 3pm EDT on Sunday. We apologize for the inconvenience. 

The CBC’s Biodiversity Informatics Program applies information technologies (IT) to collect, organize, and analyze biological and environmental data from expeditions, natural history collections, and databases as well as data from remote sensing instruments and mathematical modeling to strengthen capacity to understand biodiversity data and address conservation issues.  

We develop new methods, software programs, and training resources to help manage, analyze, and interpret the information. All products we create are released with open access licenses so students, educators, researchers, practitioners or the general public can freely use them.
