Great Smoky Mountains National Park
North Carolina and Tennessee


In 1997 we began a study of all living things in the Great Smokies (see Newsweek & Science). This project, an All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory (ATBI), has the following mission:

"Our purpose is to develop a foundation of knowledge about all species in Great Smoky Mountains National Park to better conserve and manage our natural heritage unimpaired today and for future generations."
Discover Life in America, Inc., was establisted to help support and coordinate the project. Individuals wishing to participate in the ATBI should visit www.discoverlifeinamerica.org.
