Biodiversity Data Needs Assessment for Canadian Business
Biodiversity data plays a critical role for many Canadian businesses. Both resource and non-resource based businesses need to understand the status and trends of the ecological features they may affect or use in their operations. A problem faced by many of these businesses is the difficulty in accessing credible data in a timely fashion. This includes current data as well as that from historic sources. This CBBC study is aimed at understanding more clearly the biological data needs of Canadian businesses with a view to identifying deficiencies and improving ways and means to address those needs.
