Projects contributing to ABOL can be found here
The ABOL initiative is dedicated to the recording and evaluation of the diversity of Austrian animals, plants and fungi (see About us). The overall project is executed by ABOL projects based on taxonomic groups (see ABOL cluster). These clusters integrate experts who participate in planning and realization of respective projects.
