Netherlands Centre for Biodiversity Naturalis (NCB)

Bringing together several first‐class natural history collections, the Netherlands Centre for Biodiversity Naturalis (NCBN) will instantly house the world's fifth largest specimen collection.

The NCBN will rest on two pillars: (i) its huge collection and (ii) its international reputation in systematic research in past and present.

The NCB Naturalis mission is to be an open archive of Life’s Diversity dedicated to reconstruct and understand the Tree of Life, to educate people about our natural world, and to raise awareness for the sustainable use of Earth’s living resources.
