Biodiversity in Belize

What's New!

Belize is a small country but it is known for its high biodiversity, meaning that there are many species found in a small area. There exists much information on Belize's biodiversity but this can be difficult to find. This site hopes to remedy this problem and together with related links to quality sites, the goal is to provide a comprehensive source of information about the biodiversity of Belize. 

Belize Tropical Forest Studies (BTFS) has conducted considerable research in this area.  Research has taken the form of Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA), Rapid Environmental Assessments (REA) or similar (see Projects). Clients include developers, conservation organizations, government, funding agencies and others. Our research covers numerous areas associated with terrestrial biodiversity and the results provide an overall view of our activities in Belize.

In doing so we present an overview of the status of biodiversity in Belize. This comes in the form of published research papers and taxonomically arranged species lists for Belizean species

For a complete overview, see the "Site Map". For comments, questions and additions, please contact us.

Any help with unidentified plant species will be appreciated!
