About South African EOL

SANBI (the South African National Biodiversity Institute) was established in terms of the National Biodiversity Management Act of South Africa. SANBI succeeds the National Botanical Institute, which together with its predecessor, has a history of more than a century of botanical exploration and research in South and southern Africa. SANBI has a legal mandate that includes the co-ordination and promotion of taxonomy, monitoring and reporting on the status of South Africa's biodiversity, as well as the collection, generation, processing, co-ordination and dissemination of information about biodiversity.
