GIS: Interactive Mapping
|Volunteer faculty, staff and students from many universities add to the success of our ATBI program, by setting up plots and conducting inventories|
In 2003, the All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory (ATBI) began in Tennessee State Parks with the intention of inventorying and monitoring biological features. The program not only provides much needed data to help better protect the creatures we know reside in our parks, but it will help us discover those thousands of plants and animals yet to be found in parks or even yet known to science. The inventory utilizes existing park staff, local universities and schools, community volunteers, and others with expertise or interest in biological topics.
