The Biodiversity Portal aims to provide to Brazilian society data and information on Brazilian biodiversity generated or received by the Ministry of Environment and its related institutions. Currently, the available databases are those of some of the systems maintained by the Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation (ICMBio), mainly by its Research and Conservation Centers, the Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden (JBRJ) and other partners.
Brazil is a country of continental dimensions and hosts one of the greatest diversity of flora and fauna in the world. The data provided in the PortalBio represents a broad vision on the distribution of Brazilian biodiversity.
It is possible to search, visualize, download and analyze records of the biodiversity databases currently available. For a detailed description of the functionalities available on the Portal, access the User Manual.
