Info Flora: emerged from the union of ZDSF and SKEW

The ZDSF (German abbreviation for Center of the Data Network of the Swiss Flora) and the SKEW (German abbreviation for Swiss Commission for the Conservation of Wild Plants) have been offering their services jointly under the name of Info Flora since 2012. This has resulted in a national platform on which data and information on the occurrence, threat,conservation status, protection, and biology of the Swiss flora are made publicly available or can be submitted and reported.

InfoSpecies

All national data and information centers recognized by the Swiss government work together as InfoSpecies to coordinate various shared tasks and projects.
