History[edit] The Paleobiology Database
Paleobiology Database
(PBDB) originated in the NCEAS-funded Phanerozoic Marine Paleofaunal Database initiative, which operated from August 1998 through August 2000. From 2000 to 2015, PBDB received funding from the National Science Foundation. PBDB also received support form the Australian Research Council. From 2000 to 2010 it was housed at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis,[1] a cross-disciplinary research center within the University of California, Santa Barbara. It is currently housed at University of Wisconsin-Madison
University of Wisconsin-Madison
and overseen by an international committee of major data contributors. Researchers[edit] Partial list of contributing researchers:[2]
