General Information
GBIF France hosts this data repository on behalf of Madagascar Biodiversity Information Facility (MadBIF) in collaboration with the GBIF Secretariat, built using an installation of the GBIF Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT). Most data collected within Madagascar is not documented and is only accessible to the person/team involved in the project for which the data has been collected. Moreover, there is a lack of data policy within the institutions of Madagascar. As a consequence, data knowledge is linked to individuals and disappears with them. The only public information that can be found is the information located in herbaria, museums, and various literature. MadBIF aims to promote and support publication of biodiversity data by data holders.
