! Global Names Index (GNI). GNI has been developed by GBIF, EOL, and the NSF-funded Global Names projects. It has also benefited from the ideas of an array of gifted and enthusiastic individuals.
GNI, an open source development, is a collection of combinations of characters that have been used as names for organisms. It also contains many examples of names spelled in slightly different ways. In order to be able to link all of the information about any taxon, a query beginning with one string will find data associated with any of the alternative strings.
