Searching datasets, species and occurrences

The data portal offers searches for:

  • Information on datasets (metadata): search for datasets covering a specific environment, geographical area or organism group, or containing a specific keyword. – Go to the metadatabase pages
  • Information on species: search species within an organism group, a particular genus or faunistic region and view synonyms, distribution information and conservation status. – Go to species search
  • Species occurrence data: visualise and download species observations or specimens point data available through the GBIF and Freshwater Biodiversity Data Portal/BioFresh network. – Go to occurrence search

Introduction to the data portal

A collaborative global freshwater biodiversity data hub

The aim of this data portal, which was started in the framework of the BioFresh project, and further developed under the Freshwater Information Platform, is to help scientists to advertise and publish their data(base) and to provide tools for the discovery, integration and analysis of open and freely accessible freshwater biodiversity data.

Advertise and/or publish your data on freshwater biodiversity

In order to reach the above mentioned goal, we want to integrate a large amount of databases in the metadatabase and the occurrence database. We would appreciate your support by

  1. documenting your database in the metadatabase,
  2. submitting/publishing data or by
  3. producing a data paper.
