  1. Bold, countries participating in GBIF; italics, countries with a moderate relative reliability score (RRS < 90%), which may affect BIP Index ranking. Countries for which the relative reliability score was lower than 75% are not included. RRS is the percentage of variables required in the BIP Index model that exist for the country (higher is better). ISO: ISO 3166-1-alpha-3 country codes [23]. *Chile became participant country after the BIP Index was calculated, and its dataset was therefore not used in the MRA for the model parameters.
