Rapid Biological Inventories: The RBI Team

The Field Museum coordinates the rapid biological inventories in close partnership with organizations in the host country and abroad.

The Field Museum is a collections-based research and educational institution devoted to natural and cultural diversity. Combining the fields of Anthropology, Botany, Geology, Zoology, and Conservation Biology, Museum scientists research issues in evolution, environmental biology, and cultural anthropology. Environmental and Conservation Programs (ECP) is the branch of the Museum dedicated to translating science into action that creates and supports lasting conservation. With losses of natural diversity world-wide and accelerating, ECP’s mission is to direct the Museum’s resources – scientific expertise, worldwide collections, innovative education programs – to the immediate needs of conservation at local, national, and international levels.
