In the 2012 President's Budget Request, the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) is terminated. As a result, all resources, databases, tools, and applications within this web site will be removed on January 15, 2012. For more information, please refer to the NBII Program Termination page.
Underpinning the NBII's information network is a network of partners; these partners, representing the spectrum of sectors, assume a variety of roles to help us deliver this information system to you, the end-user.
NBII is proud to work with such a wide range of partners, which include:
U.S. Local Government Partners: County and municipal governments across the U.S. are taking an increasingly active role in the management of their local natural resources.
International Partners: NBII is the U.S. representative for many initiatives at bilateral, regional, hemispheric, and global scales.
Non-Profit Partners: These agencies are active in field studies that generate a sizeable amount of data and information on species and ecosystems.
Private Sector: Private industry has a strong role to play in the management and use of natural resources, and is the source of much research and innovation.
Universities: Traditionally focused on research, university partners are also exploring cutting-edge techniques and technologies to help better manage natural resources, and the data and information generated from studying them.
Multi-Sector Partners: Collaboration across sectors is taking place in the field of biological informatics, and NBII is a focal point for many of these innovative partnerships.
The NBII Program is administered by the Biological Informatics Program of the U.S. Geological Survey
