The World Information Network on Biodiversity (REMIB) is organized and provided by Mexico's National Commission for the Knowledge and Use of the Biodiversity. REMIB is a network of shared biological information databases from research centers in Mexico, the US, Costa Rica, and Spain. The databases contain "curatorial, taxonomic, ecological, cartographic, bibliographic, ethno-biological type, use of catalogues on natural resources and other subject matters." Currently, REMIB gathers information on taxonomic groups of plants, as well as terrestrial and aquatic vertebrates, and invertebrates. The network contains information on over 6 million specimens from over 200 countries, and will be soon be incorporating collections from additional sources, such as the Smithsonian Institution and the Kew Herbarium. Users must first click on Access to the Information and accept the conditions for data use before reaching the network's search engine. The main page includes links to the home pages of partner institutions.
