What we're reading: July 2018


Another month, another diverse range of research supported by GBIF-mediated data.

A big haul this month, with 71 peer-reviewed uses, with highlights from below including the first citation from The Lancet on global hotspots for snakebite envenoming, a massive international collaboration on the BioTIME dataset (which includes many GEO BON colleagues) and an fascinating synthesis of evidence- and expert opinion-based modelling on Mexican primates whose co-authors include Mexico’s head of delegation, Patricia Koleff, of CONABIO.

Happy reading!
