Welcome to the University of California, Santa Barbara Natural History Data Portal

The UC Santa Barbara Collection Network Natural History Data Portal serves as a gateway for natural history data resources for the University of California Santa Barbara, UCSB Natural Reserve System, and UCSB Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration. Through a common web interface, we offer tools to locate, access, and work with a variety of natural history data including specimens found in collections and observations from citizen science and research. This portal is more than just a website - it is a suite of data access technologies and a distributed network of collections across UCSB or outside collections that have holdings from UCSB and UCSB NRS locations.
