US National Biological Information Infrastructure

The US NBII is scheduled for termination as of January 15, 2012. http://www.nbii.gov/portal/server.pt/community/termination_of_nbii_program/2057 This has been a collaborative US project to provide access to information and data on natural resources. The datasets involved are varied. Some will be maintained by partner institutions ; for example, the Seabird Ecological Assessment Network is housed at the University of Wisconsin. Others will be dropped such as the Marine Habitats Website. Time will tell if we loss access to important data.
