Statewide Biological Database
The Bureau of Laboratories administers the Statewide Biological Database (SBIO). Although tools for storage and manipulation of species-level data have existed and evolved over the past 20 years,
this particular database was developed in the early 1990's in response to the need for centralization of biological data collected over
the past 40 years by DEP and its predecessor agencies. This biological data had for many years resided on paper, in drawers, and in several
mainframe programs used by the central laboratory in the Biology Section.
The following table shows the amount and kinds of data in the database.
