Abstract
    i4Life provides linkages between the Catalogue of Life, an expert based knowledge portal for living species on earth, and global partners (IUCN, GBIF, ENA at EBI, BOLD, EoL, and Life Watch) providing data portals for distribution, genetic diversity and conservation information. This novel e-infrastructure offers the only single global consensus list of living species on earth and their associated data. This structure uses custom services to cross-map, transfer, and make available subsets of this global list to interested users. It facilitates both global and local understanding of biodiversity, it’s distribution, variation and threats.
