Washington: The USGS (US Geological Survey) National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) has developed a new search engine that helps users hunt through massive amounts of online information about plants and animals.
NBII’s revamped search engine offers a variety of new features, including the ability to search multiple databases at the same time and the ability to return results that arrive in “clusters,” or automatically generated categories associated with the search topic.
For example, a search on “grizzly bear” turns up cluster topics like “endangered species,” “park science” and “grizzly bear management planning” that point to new areas of inquiry.
