Welcome to iDiv's Biodiversity Data Portal

iDiv represents a large scale collaborative biodiversity science research initiaitve whose central mission is to promote theory-driven synthesis and data-driven theory. It is widely agreed upon that data preservation and sharing is essential to further biodiversity research in general and to reach these aims in particular. To support this, many funding agencies – including DFG – have strong expectations with respect to data management and reuse.

Within iDiv, the Biodiversity Informatics Unit (BDU) is providing iDiv's Biodiversity Data Portal (iBDP), an infrastructure for data management. The main aim of the portal is to help iDiv's researchers and scientists to organise, store, access, visualise, share and publish biodiversity data.

To access data and data management facilities that this portal provides, you should be a registered user. For registration, go to the Register link located on top right-side of this page or click here. Details regarding the use of the data management portal can be found under Help link.

The portal is a ongoing development process. There always will be enhancements, additions of new features, performance optimisation, bugs fixing and improvements to user-interface to make it more user-friendly.
