ABSTRACT: Biodiversity Information Serving Our Nation (BISON), hosted by USGS, is a unique, web-based Federal mapping resource for species occurrence data in the United States and its Territories. It currently contains more than 381 million records for virtually all species and areas in the US. These include approximately 15 million records for non-native species. Extensive web services allow direct connection of scripts and other applications for automated analyses and use on other websites. Data provider statistics allow tracking of usage to individual data sets. BISON is the primary application of the US Node of the Global Biodiversity Information Facility and has standardized taxonomy provided by the Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS). Numerous capabilities and derivatives of BISON services and data that pertain to invasives will be described.
