Seal of the Humboldt-University of Berlin is a shared technical platform supporting a number of mediawiki installations used by a diverse array of projects in biology, and especially biodiversity research. The primary purpose of the shared platform is to be able to maintain the published data and information in a long term sustainable way, to work more efficiently and distribute administrative and maintenance work among several partners. Furthermore, the biowikifarm operates a shared media repository, enabling synergies in re-using media content.

The biowikifarm was built within the ViBRANT EU FP7 project by JKI and the BGBM. Presently, Plazi (responsibility for content, legal clearances), the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (MfN) (hosting), the Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem (BGBM) (programming, technical support, secondary guarantee for long-term online availability), and the IT Center of the Bavarian Natural History Collections (SNSB) (programming, technical support, secondary guarantee for long-term online availability) form a management consortium. In addition, several projects and individuals using the biowikifarm provide a significant contribution to the management of the farm.
