Primacy of the NBN and NBN Atlas
RECOMMENDATION 1: PRIMACY OF THE NBN & NBN ATLAS
The National Biodiversity Network (NBN) and NBN Atlas platform remain the primary place for the submission, dissemination and discovery of biological records and added-value datasets and services.
The NBN Atlas is the single, central data repository for all sectors seeking to contribute, provide or use biological records and associated information for terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments alike. Biological records should be submitted via an affiliated route or directly provided to the NBN Atlas as soon as possible after their collection.
