For more than four decades, NatureServe network scientists and data managers have painstakingly surveyed, documented, and mapped the natural world. In collaboration with our partners, we offer access to this wealth of information in many formats, from our searchable "Online Encyclopedia of Life"—NatureServe Explorer—to detailed maps and map services, and from web services you can start using today to custom data products tailored to your specific requirements. Our work provides a strong foundation for yours.
