General information and objectivesThe bioGENESIS Science Plan encourages scientific research that will facilitate the development of new strategies and tools for discovering, documenting and navigating various aspects of biodiversity, as well as to understand why and how the diversity of life evolved in time and space. In the face of ever-accelerating environmental change, the ultimate goal is to dramatically increase efficiency in the assessment of biological diversity: from the collection of specimens in the field, to the discovery and description of new species and clades, to rendering these data readily accessible and interoperable with other biodiversity information.
