The tool incorporates also 2,700 new images.
The Ministry of Territorial Policy, Sustainability and Safety of the Canary Islands Government, through the General Direction of Protection of Nature, has updated the contents of the biodiversity data bank of the Canary Islands (aka BDBC in Spanish), which expands with new data on more than a thousand species from half a thousand of new documents. The tool has incorporated, in addition, 2,700 new images.
The Biodiversity Data Bank of Canary Islands is a database that brings together information about all wild species known from Canary Islands (plants, fungi and animals), both terrestrial and marine.
The BDBC is a free tool online for free access (www.biodiversidadcanarias.es) and brings together relevant information on Canary species, including images, taxonomic data, endemic and habitat, among others.
Grafcan updated the Map of Protected Species of the Canary Islands.
Updated information is accessible through the viewfinder (http://visor.grafcan.es) in the section on ‘Protected Areas’, where the Geo-references of threatened species are distributed in grids of 500 x 500 meter.
