Abstract

The earth is experiencing a dangerous status because of the faster and faster speed of biodiversity losses. The management and sharing of biodiversity data is the basis and pre-condition of biodiversity protection. From the global view, the example projects of CoL(Catalogue of Life), GBIF(Global Biodiversity Information Facility), EOL(Encyclopedia of Life), BHL(Biodiversity Heritage Library) and BOLD Systems had paved a good basis of biodiversity research. And other projects like WDPA(World Database on Protected Areas) and IUCN Redlist gave other thematic biodiversity data. These portals also provide some tools and APIs which made data application and sharing easier. In China, biodiversity data are distributed in different portals funded by Ministry of S&T, Chinese Academy of Sciences and different institutes. In recent years, more and more collaborative international or regional projects are carried out, for example the MAP(Mapping Asia Plants). China will play an important role in the collaborative activities in the Asia and One Belt and One Road area.
