GeoNadir is founded on FAIR principles. The β€˜I’ in FAIR stands for interoperable. This means that we need to keep the build of our platform consistent with widely understood and used classification schemes to allow users to exchange information simply and easily across platforms and software.

The IUCN habitats classification scheme is widely recognised and refers to standard terms used to describe major habitat/s in which taxa occur. The habitat terms on GeoNadir were derived from this scheme.

You can learn more about how the IUCN habitat categories are applied to GeoNadir data here.
To read the full scheme and classifications, please refer to: IUCN Red List of Threatened Species
