Large-scale ecological data sets are
essential to enhance our understanding of
biodiversity in a changing world. Yet,
efforts to aggregate and harmonize
ecological data at a global scale are still in
their infancy.

Global Biotic Interactions (GloBI) builds an
extensible, open-source infrastructure for
the dynamic integration and sharing of
species interaction data. GloBI acts as a
catalyst for connecting previously siloed
communities through the data they share.
This approach helps to improve the
resilience, quality, and diversity of the
data ecosystem as a whole.
