Abstract. The analysis of international and Russian experience of biodiversity database developing allowed us to reveal that international GBIF standard is expedient to use for development of unified Russian biodiversity database. GBIF is an universal system, which aggregates and unifies information from many data sources. Unified species registers and data Darwin Core format is used in GBIF. To develop Russian segment of the GBIF, Darwin Core is needed to improve: to add information about an accuracy of geographical position of species finding and a type of species habitat. Species registers in existing databases must be unified for this.
Key words: geodatabase, biodiversity, GBIF.
