About the project
Karoo BioGaps Project: Filling biodiversity information gaps to support development decision-making in the Karoo
The current paucity of biodiversity data will be addressed through:
1) integrating and upgrading existing species data located in museums and herbaria, and
2) conducting detailed surveys for 11 representative taxonomic groups in areas targeted for shale gas exploration.
