Pacific Northwest - About the Node
The NBII Pacific Northwest Information Node (PNWIN) is a central location for biological data and information related to the Pacific Northwest. PNWIN is a regional information network of the NBII intended to provide access to information and services relevant to forest resources in the Pacific Northwest. It is one of a series of regional NBII nodes providing a dynamic focus for biological information exchange, communication, and decision support for natural resources management across the region. The Node is a source of biological and natural resources data; bibliographic summaries, management principles, and regulatory requirements for public and private lands; and user tools for decision making and planning. For more general information about the Pacific Northwest Information Node, please see our fact sheet (PDF format). For more information about projects supported by PNWIN, visit our Supported Projects page.
