OBIS – Ocean Biogeographic Information System

Rubens Lopes is the manager of the regional OBIS node Tropical and Subtropical Southwest Atlantic hosted at IOUSP. OBIS is an evolving strategic alliance of people and organizations sharing a vision to make marine biogeographic data, from all over the world, freely available over the World Wide Web. OBIS was one of the core projects of the 10-year program Census of Marine Life (2000-2010), as its information system component. In 2009, OBIS was adopted by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO, as one of its activities under its International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) program. 


The OBIS Brazil node is temporarily closed for new contributions.
