Biodiversity Atlas – India Websites

The 'Biodiversity Atlas – India' is a species-based bioinformatics platform. It is designed for aggregating, displaying and analysing biodiversity data from tropical developing countries and other biodiversity hotspots such as India. It is a distributed platform of stand-alone, taxon-specific, natural history websites that give ownership and recognition to citizen scientists and other user communities. All these websites run on the same core bioinformatics code, social and scientific philosophy, and mode of operation. The current BAI website family is as follows:
