The Foundational Biodiversity Information Programme
The Foundational Biodiversity Information Programme (FBIP) is a long-term programme to generate, manage and disseminate foundational biodiversity information and knowledge to improve decision-making, service delivery and create new economic opportunities.
The Foundational Biodiversity Information Programme (FBIP) is funded by the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI). The South African National Biodiversity Institute (SANBI) and the National Research Foundation (NRF) jointly manages the programme.
Dr Marliese Trauter had no idea she’d be working on fish parasites by the end of her undergrad studies, we chat to her about her journey.
The Foundational Biodiversity Information Programme (FBIP) has contributed nearly 100 new species to biodiversity science in nine years.
Prof Shelley Edwards and her colleagues have described a new species and a new genus, named after Prof Bill Branch.
