Date and Time

Ninth meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 9)

The German National Focal Point (NFP) of the Global Taxonomy Initiative (GTI) started a study to provide analysis and surveys for The Global Assessment of Taxonomic Needs and Capacities (GTNA) in early 2007. We present the results, significance of the study, and summarize our conclusions for taxonomists, scientists, stakeholders, politicians, and decision makers to diminish the "taxonomic impediment."
