Large groups of organisms are still virtually unknown to science. The Swedish Taxonomy Initiative (STI) supports research and inventories directed towards these groups. The Swedish Taxonomy Initiative aims to map and scientifically describe all plants, animals and fungi in Sweden, with priority for poorly known species and groups of organisms. As part of this, funding for taxonomic research is announced annually. Annual funding is also announced for networking activities to stimulate the building of competence in systematics and taxonomy.
