Biodiversidata's first manuscript

This is the first manuscript we publish with Biodiversidata that uses the data collated by our initiative. We found that, despite gathering an enormous amount of information on where species are distributed in Uruguay, these data were spatially, taxonomically and spatially biased. Alarmingly, more than 95% of Uruguay’s surface remains insufficiently sampled. In order to be able to assess changes in biodiversity and make better evidence-based decisions, it is urgent to increase the data available that can allow us to understand this diversity.
