CHM initiatives :: BIODIVERSITY.BG
BIODIVERSITY.BG is a domain name, through which the information space related to biodiversity in Bulgaria has been structured. This structuring has been done in order to provide easy to remember and use Internet addresses, each of them corresponding to certain area of biological diversity in the country. Thus through BIODIVERSITY.BG and its sub-domains such as for example specialists.biodiversity.bg, access has been made possible to information about specialists (in the example given), as well as about institutions, organizations, funding, education, protected areas and GIS etc, all related to biodiversity in Bulgaria. The same information sources are available through other web sites over the Internet, but often the addresses of these web sites are difficult to remember and find.
