General Information
The U.S. node to GBIF represents an integral part of the U.S. Geological Survey’s activities to collect, organize and share biological information. As with other initiatives, the U.S. GBIF node streamlines access to U.S. biodiversity information and links it with broader geoscience data to address critical societal issues. BISON is the primary project contributing to the node. It provides a specialized view of GBIF records for the U.S. and assists with provision of U.S. records to GBIF.
