Biodiversity Information Serving Our Nation (BISON)

Species occurrences for the United States and U.S. Territories.

This pilot implementation of a GBIF national data portal for the United States is part of the Biodiversity Information Serving Our Nation (BISON) project’s suite of biodiversity data and information resources managed by the Science Analytics and Synthesis (SAS) Program of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). It serves as an access point to species occurrence data (presence and absence) for the United States and U.S. Territories.
