Biodiversity information sharing

Biodiversity information in DEWNR is predominantly stored in the Biological Databases of South Australia (BDBSA) which manages specimen and observation records and includes taxonomic systems for South Australian flora and fauna.

BDBSA data supports decision making on environmental issues within the South Australian and Australian governments as well as the wider community with an interest in biodiversity conservation.
