How it can help?
GEO BON’s mission is to improve the acquisition, coordination and delivery of biodiversity information (including information relevant to biological invasion) and services to users, particularly decision-makers. GEO BON’s vision is to provide by 2025, a robust, extensive and interoperable biodiversity observation network covering the major biomes of the globe.
