Biodiversity Collections Index online
The Biodiversity Collections Index (BCI) is now online. It replaces the metadata network formerly part of BioCASE.
Research into biodiversity relies on the use of specimens. These specimens are held in reference collections around the world. BCI is a central index to these collections and was instigated in October 2007 by Roger Hyam as a response to the work on Globally Unique Identifiers and Natural Collections Descriptions that was going on within Biodiversity Information Standards (TDWG).
