History and Background

Established in 1982, the Association of Systematic Biologists of the Philippines (ASBP) aims to promote and represent the science and practice of taxonomy, systematics and natural history in the country. Initially formed by a core group of Filipino biologists and researchers based in the National Museum, its membership has grown to encompass professionals, students and enthusiasts all over the Philippines and abroad. Its scope has expanded in recent years outside of the traditional sphere of basic taxonomy and systematics to include ethnobiology, biodiversity conservation and public education. Membership in the ASBP is open to all who subscribe to the goals of the organization.
