  Name: Global Biodiversity Information Facility
  Abbreviation: GBIF
  Description: GBIF is an international organisation that is working to make the world's biodiversity data freely accessible. The GBIF data portal is a service that provides access to millions of data records that are being shared via the GBIF network. These data are generously made available through the GBIF network by a wide range of institutions and organisations from around the world. The two types of data currently being shared through the GBIF Network are: * Species occurrence records (based on specimens and observations) - information about the occurrence of species at particular times and places. * Names and classifications of organisms - information on the names (both scientific and common) used for species and on the classification of those organisms into taxonomic hierarchies.
