Logo for Environment Ontology The Environment Ontology is a resource and research target for the semantically controlled description of environmental entities. The ontology's initial aim was the representation of the biomes, environmental features, and environmental materials pertinent to genomic and microbiome-related investigations.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Environment Ontology should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
09200010   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Environment Ontology should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
MIRIAM Namespace Embedded in LUI
The legacy MIRIAM standard for generating CURIEs with this resource annotates the namespaceEmbeddedInLUI as true. This means that you may see local unique identifiers that include a redundant prefix and delimiter (also known as a banana) and therefore look like a CURIE. For Environment Ontology, the banana looks like ENVO:. Therefore, you may see local unique identifiers for this resource that look like ENVO:09200010 (instead of the canonical form 09200010) and CURIEs for this resource that look like ENVO:ENVO:09200010 (instead of the canonical form ENVO:09200010). The Bioregistry will automatically strip off the banana when standardizing local unique identifiers and CURIEs.
Metaregistry Environment Ontology

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 10 mappings to external registries for this resource with 2 unique external prefixes.

RDF Information

When using this resource in RDF, the following URI format should be used:



A provider turns a local unique identifiers from a resource into a URI. Many providers are also resolvable as URLs (i.e., they can be used in a web browser).

The local unique identifier 09200010 is used to demonstrate the providers available for Environment Ontology. A guide for curating additional providers can be found here.
