Taiwan Biodiversity Research Institute

Taiwan Biodiversity Network, TBN

The Taiwan Biodiversity Network (TBN) is committed to offering users unparrelled access to wildlife distribution knowledge in Taiwan. At its core, TBN provides intricate information on the "who", "when", and "where" of Taiwan's rich wildlife. Users can easily retrieve this data using the 'Find Data' or 'Find Species' features on our homepage. The "Visualizations" section offers an interactive experience with maps highlighting species occurrences across various parameters such as administrative counties, protected areas, and ecological network regions. Stay updated on biodiversity open data trends with our daily-refreshed data hotspot, data coldspot, and data gap charts. While TBN is a treasure trove of wildlife distribution knowledge, we also value your field observations. Our "Participation" section collects various citizen-science biodiversity projects, allowing you to share observations in a project that resonates with your interests.
TBN's extensive database is at its core supported by researchers from the Taiwan Biodiversity Research Institute and data from collaborative citizen science initiatives. Open data from the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) and other sources including private sectors amplify our data repository, offering a panoramic view of Taiwan's wildlife distribution.
For plant enthusiasts, TBN is proud to present the digital platform of the Herbarium of Taiwan Biodiversity Research Institute (TAIE). Explore the detailed digital collections available on TAIE's website (, which boasts high-resolution imagery of ferns, gymnosperms, and angiosperms.
