Short summary
We introduce here a comprehensive database of stratigraphy and palaeontology biodiversity, the Geobiodiversity Database (GBDB). The GBDB collects and provides a big volume of fossil and stratum record data and aims to be more widely used by geoscientists and contribute to better quantitative research on palaeontology and stratigraphy, and furthermore, to a deeper understanding of the evolution of life and of Earth's history.
