BIOTA-FAPESP – supporting biodiversity, building partnerships, and filling the knowledge gaps
AbstractAbstract ECO92, a United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, hosted by Brazil in 1992 was a catalyst for much activity on biodiversity in the State of São Paulo and eventually led to the establishment of BIOTA-FAPESP. BIOTA-FAPESP quickly evolved into a world-leading research program that has broadened to cover all aspects of biodiversity in the State from genes through species and to ecosystems and the interactions between them. Through the funding of multi-disciplinary projects, the development of collaborative links within the State, nationally and internationally, and the astute use of databases to link the program’s project outputs it has set a platform for filling the biodiversity knowledge gaps. Having achieved much in the last two decades, it still has some way to go, but the stage is set.
