Why NatureServe Data?

What makes NatureServe unique is that we’ve established a standardized way of collecting field data, mapping biological features, assessing the condition of those mapped elements, and managing the information. From the Artic to the Andes, the NatureServe Network assesses and documents detailed scientific data for more than 70,000 species and 7,000 ecosystems using our core methodologies, so you can be sure our data is decision-quality.

As proof, our data and expertise are used to guide millions of conservation actions towards the species and habitats that need it most. Also, our data is widely used and relied on by a variety of organizations.
