Add a NODES component to this SLIDE as GBIF historical focus has collections as a core
Native distribution, 100 pts as white squares, purple ramp shows ENM based on those points
North American projection of SE Asian ENM for Aedes
Actual progress of invasion of this species … red = new counties, blue = keeping the tally Click and you see the comparison … NOTE THAT THE SPECIES invaded in NA ONLY out to the limits of its SE Asian ecological potential
GLOBAL BIODIVERSITY INFORMATION FACILITY Nick King and Vishwas Chavan GBIF Secretariat WWW.GBIF.ORG The Global Biodiversity Information Facility: Building the Biodiversity Informatics Commons Building the Biodiversity Informatics Commons Albuquerque, 2-7 Aug. 2009
Key Millennium Assessment Solutions GBIF is a multi-country response to the need to mobilise information in order to facilitate improved decision-making... ” data without borders”
GBIF is a Govt-sponsored science research infrastructure initiative...
responsive to government needs/demands in biodiversity management – govt-initiated, and govt funded ;
developing an advanced informatics infrastructure for the global scientific (+ national research institutions) community for accessing and sharing data and thereby making better use of the huge investments in data collection, storage, management and updating of biodiversity information in countries.
Only started in 2001....
GBIF’s growing global network Currently, 50 countries, 40 international organisations
Taxonomic browse navigation using choice of classification
The GBIF Data Portal http://data.gbif.org/
Georef’d data via GBIF portal (>181m records mapped to a 1 X 1 degree grid)
In summary…GBIF’s Informatics Improved access to Names, Metadata and Primary Biodiversity Data Distributed GBIF informatics architecture Faster and easier publishing of data
At the core, a Discovery System Consumers Data Publishers Searching Retrieving Discovering Discovery System Registering Service Publishers Others…
That links to resources… A distributed service ………… .. which resolves to information resources Who? Institutions, Collections … What? Where? When? How Data, Services, GUID/LSID… Location, Access points… Temporal Scope… Formats, protocols, qualities … ./
Key Components: the IPT IPT The Integrated Publishing Toolkit is a state-of-the-art tool to simplify the mobilization of biodiversity information resources such as Names, Metadata and primary biodiversity data Data Publisher Registration (GBRDS) + Publishing of Names, Metadata, Primary biodiversity data etc…
Simple process! The Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT) is designed to simplify the mapping, indexing and harvesting of Names, Metadata and Primary Biodiversity Data!
Building a comprehensive global architecture for nomenclature
Data mobilised by the USA, including other countries of origin
GBIF Data portal and data access/sharing/ repatriation
Integrating Biodiversity Data… Spain Madagascar Data processing from the two databases Each Protected Area polygon processed….

Some do gain habitat potential, but this requires migration and suitable habitat (for forests) at destination;
Important implications for REDD and other CC adaptation/mitigation programmes
Conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity Monitoring of status and trends of biodiversity (sound science) GBIF- accessible data Policy development and decision making (at local, national, regional, and global levels)
