        • Background
      2007 Autumn: CATE project seeks eTaxonomic successor November: Submission of Consortium grant proposal to NERC 2008 April: NERC Consortium grant panel presentation July: Proposal not funded December: CATE project finishes 2009 September: Permission to resubmit granted November: Resubmission of Consortium grant proposal to NERC 2010 April: NERC Consortium grant panel presentation May: Proposal Funded November/December: Project start.
    • Aims (1)
      • Sustainable integrated web resource for Monocots
      • Family key/pages
      • Generic keys/pages:
        • Araceae [CATE-Araceae]
        • Arecaceae [Palmweb]
        • Poaceae [GrassBase]
        • Orchidaceae
        • Asparagaceae
        • Cyperaceae
        • Dioscoreaceae
        • Liliaceae
      • Three species level resources:
        • European Monocots
        • Sampled Red List Index Project
        • Cypripedioideae
    • Aims (2)
      • e monocot Scratchpads http://scratchpads.eu
        • Aus Grasses
        • Dracaenoids
        • CITES bulbs
        • More needed
        • Link to core eMonocot family resources
      • Conduct five Workshops
      • Integrate eMonocot with EOL and other biodiversity informatics partners (CBOL, GBIF…)
      • Ensure compatibility and compliance with the Zoological Code of Nomenclature
      • Develop a Web-based system of assessing the impact of taxonomic work

        • Other impact plan activities
    • To deliver the goals of eMonocot a level of community involvement is critical How do we propose to work with taxonomic communities to generate both core eMonocot and scratchpad resources? Four questions: 1) How do taxonomists divide themselves into groups offline? What groups exist already? 2) What are the benefits and disadvantages of many small communities compared to few large communities? 3) What are the benefits and disadvantages of ad-hoc / organic community creation versus more controlled organization? 4) What are the stages in the life of an online community and where could or should support be provided?
