  19. 19. The Biodiversity Landscape BHL: (Mostly) old species descriptions, images, data and keys EoL: Mashup and pointers/citations of distributed content EoL-LiveDesk: Fill in information according to EoL needs EDIT Scratchpads: Create an “online-book” with closed authorship. Publication-like descriptions and keys? Wiki-based publication? With review? EDIT CDM System: platform for data management
