Discover Life in America

Cove Hardwood TrailThe ATBI is gaining ground in scientific discoveries! As of January 2010, DLIA's ATBI Program has resulted in the identification of over 900 species new to science. In just over a decade we have coordinated the discovery of over 6,500 more species previously known to exist, but not known to inhabit the Park.

Discover Life in America (DLIA) is the non-profit organization coordinating the All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory (ATBI) in Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Learn more about these fascinating new discoveries!

DLIA is also part of a group of organizations joining to form an alliance of parks, preserves, recreation areas, and monuments known collectively as the ATBI Alliance.
