The compatibility of data standards between PGR and other biodiversity collections made it possible to integrate the worldwide ex situ germplasm collections into the biodiversity community.
Using GBIF technology (and contributing to its development), the PGR community can easily establish specific PGR networks without duplicating GBIF's work.
Use of GBIF technology and integration of PGR collection data into GBIF allows PGR users to simultaneously search PGR collections and other biodiversity collections, and to get access to the data (and possibly the material) of relevant biodiversity collections.
The Crop Wild Resources could also build on the experiences of the ex situ genebank collections to improve the compatibility with the GBIF/TDWG technology and standards…
