Global Forest Biodiversity Initiative
The Global Forest Biodiversity Initiative (GFBI) consists of foresters and forest scientists who study and manage the world’s largest tree-level forest inventory database. The network supports cutting-edge research and has gathered more than 1.2 million tree-level plots from over 70 countries. As a platform, GFBI platform disseminates research and forest education internationally and gives access to global forest inventory data and services.
Global Soil Biodiversity Initiative
The Global Soil Biodiversity Initiative (GSBI) promotes expert knowledge on soil biodiversity in environmental policy and sustainable land management to protect and enhance ecosystem services. The global network of more than a hundred scientists has built a dataset containing over 11,000 soil samples from over 50 countries, allowing ecosystem services to incorporate scientific knowledge in their projects.
