The National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) is a broad, collaborative program to provide increased access to data and information on the nation's biological resources. NBII contains databases, teacher resources, references, information on current issues and geographically specific information pertaining to the biological sciences. Searchable databases include information on botany, fisheries, reptiles and amphibians and a quick species search. Teacher resources are categorized by topic and grade level, including exercises on a variety of biological subjects and activities designed for specific states. Biological information is organized by geographic regions both nationally and internationally. NBII is best used to answer a wide range of questions related to management, use or conservation of biological resources. This resource is a part of the Biocomplexity collection. http//
