  2. 2. LIST OF CONTRIBUTING PROJECTS SUPPORTED BY TOTAL FOUNDATION <ul><li>Objective 1: I nventory of the Southern Ocean biodiversity </li></ul><ul><li>“ A database of living Antarctic benthic Foraminifera (Protista) for SCAR-MarBIN RAMS” (A.J. GOODAY, UK): (in progress). </li></ul><ul><li>“ Databasing Antarctica’s marine Bioconstructors: Adding Large Sessile Habitat-forming Animals” (H. GRIFFITHS, UK): (in progress). </li></ul><ul><li>“ SCAR-MarBIN database of Ostracoda Myocopida and Podocopida” (S. BRANDAO, Germany): submitted. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Cumacea (Crustacea: Peracarida) of the Southern Ocean” (U. MÜHLENHARDT-SIEGEL,  Germany). (done). </li></ul><ul><li>“ Synopsis of the Amphipoda Hyperiidea of the Southern Ocean, with distribution and ecological data” (W. ZEIDLER, Australia). (done). </li></ul><ul><li>“ Building a biogeographic baseline of obligate Antarctic benthic brooders: isopods for the SCAR-MarBIN and SOMBASE” (S. KAISER, Germany). (in progress). </li></ul><ul><li>“ Biogeographic distribution of the Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic brachiopods (living forms)” (C. EMIG, France). (in progress). </li></ul>
  3. 3. LIST OF CONTRIBUTING PROJECTS SUPPORTED BY TOTAL FOUNDATION <ul><li>Objective 1: Objective 1: I nventory of the Southern Ocean biodiversity (cont.) </li></ul><ul><li>“ Systematics and distribution of echinoids collected during Australian cruises in East Antarctica” (Dr T. SAUCÈDE, France). (in progress).  </li></ul><ul><li>“ Biodiversity of Antarctic and Sub-Antarctic Crinoids” (M. ELÉAUME, France). (in prep.). </li></ul><ul><li>“ Biogeographic database of Antarctic and sub-Antarctic Polychaetes” (A. GLOVER, UK). (in prep.). </li></ul><ul><li>“ Contribution to the SCAR-MarBIN Molluscs database” (M. SCHRÖDL, Germany). (submitted). </li></ul><ul><li>“ Various general contributions to SCAR-MarBIN RAMS and ANTOBIS databases” (Labo. Carcinology, RBINS, Belgium). (done). </li></ul><ul><li>Objective 2: Develop the taxonomic knowledge and expertise for the Southern Ocean </li></ul><ul><li>“ Field guide of Antarctic marine macrofauna for ROV images” (S. SCHIAPARELLI, Italy). (in progress). </li></ul>
  4. 4. The CAML / SCAR-MarBIN CYBERTAXONOMY INITIATIVE <ul><li>Thanks to the support of the TOTAL Foundation, the “CAML / SCAR-MarBIN Cybertaxonomy Initiative” will: </li></ul><ul><li>identify the most important needs in taxonomic identification tools for the Southern Ocean biodiversity </li></ul><ul><li>support – through a “minigrant” system - the development of new IT identification tools. </li></ul><ul><li>Objectives </li></ul><ul><li>Develop cybertaxonomy to facilitate and speed up the identification process. </li></ul><ul><li>Complete the coverage of identification guides and tools for the Southern Ocean organisms. </li></ul><ul><li>Stimulate taxonomic revisions of the Southern Ocean species where needed. </li></ul>
  5. 5. The CAML / SCAR-MarBIN CYBERTAXONOMY INITIATIVE <ul><li>Submission of proposals </li></ul><ul><li>RAMS Taxonomic Editors are invited to submit short (max 2 pages) proposals. Proposals from other expert taxonomists are admissible at the condition they are introduced or recommended by RAMS Taxonomic Editors. </li></ul><ul><li>Applications should be for up to € 5,000. </li></ul><ul><li>Applications will be evaluated by peer review. </li></ul><ul><li>Applications should be submitted by email to [email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>What kind of project is acceptable? </li></ul><ul><li>New ID guides and tools, in priority new electronic interactive keys. </li></ul><ul><li>Taxonomic revision of Antarctic taxa including ID tools. </li></ul><ul><li>Photographic atlases of particular taxonomic groups, with validated identifications, which may contribute to a general online “Antarctic Field Guide” and in turn to the Encyclopedia of Life. </li></ul>
  6. 6. The CAML / SCAR-MarBIN CYBERTAXONOMY INITIATIVE <ul><li>Submission of proposals ( cont .) </li></ul><ul><li>Applications will be evaluated by peer review </li></ul><ul><li>Priority will be given to: </li></ul><ul><li>The most species-rich taxonomic groups in the Southern Ocean s.l. (Antarctic and sub-Antarctic). </li></ul><ul><li>The most important groups in terms of ecological role(s) in the Southern Ocean ecosystems. </li></ul><ul><li>Taxonomic groups with high abundance or wide occurrence in the Southern Ocean. </li></ul><ul><li>Groups in strong need of taxonomic revision. </li></ul><ul><li>ID tools including Antarctic and sub-Antarctic species. </li></ul><ul><li>Applications should be submitted by email to: [email_address] using the attached application form. </li></ul>
