General Information
Biological collections are replete with taxonomic, geographic, temporal, numerical, and historical information. This information is crucial for understanding and properly managing biodiversity and ecosystems, but is often difficult to access. Data publication is the act of making that information available online, and is the core mission of Canadensys. Most of the datasets contain specimen data, but checklists and observation data are present as well.
