The OBServ project OBServ aims to co-develop a user-friendly open library of pollinator biodiversity and ecosystem service models which can be used to deliver local and global predictive maps based on different environmental scenarios. In order to achieve this we will specifically (i) capture stakeholder needs and broader socio-economic dimensions of biodiversity, (ii) expand biodiversity models beyond species richness, and (iii) compare and validate predictions of data- driven, statistical and mechanistic biodiversity models.
