  • Where does the data come from?
    Data comes from the institutions and legacy literature
    116,000,000 plant records
  • Collections, GBIF series
    None is complete on its own, the power is in aggretation; data highly complimentary, none complete alone, power in aggregation

  • 32. Bouchout Declaration Persistent Identifiers Persistent identifiers for data objects and physical objects such as specimens, images and taxonomic treatments with standard mechanisms to take users directly to content and data
  • 33. Bouchout Declaration Linked Open Data Linking data using agreed vocabularies, both within and beyond biodiversity, that enable participation in the Linked Open Data Cloud
  • 34. Bouchout Declaration Development Dialogue to refine the concept, priorities and technical requirements of Open Biodiversity Knowledge Management
