  • The first version of LifeDesks was released about a year ago ~170 sites have been created so far, most of them are still very much under construction 13 LifeDesks have data published on EOL
  • Example: my LifeDesk Overview: accommodate a number of different content types: images, taxon pages, bibliographic references
  • Most important component: biological classification = backbone of the LifeDesk, used for organizing information & navigation
  • There are a number of different ways in which this classification can be created on a LifeDesk: Type or paste in taxon names (small groups, no hierarchy info) Import from an Excel spreadsheet (3 formats) Import from EOL - easiest - DEMO: download Nemopoda
  • In addition to images, you can also create taxon pages which may consist of image objects and a series of text objects. Text objects are created using a simple text editor, and each LIfeDesk comes preconfigured with placeholders for text sections that are mapped against TDWG's developing Species Profile Model, which is also used as the standard to categorize content on the EOL. Users can decide whether the content they are developing is in draft status, i.e., it is visible only to registered site members, or it is published, i.e., visible to any site visitor and available for export to EOL.

  • The image upload interface is currently very simple
  • You first have to select a taxon from your classification to which the image is attached, then you upload the image add a caption assumption: all LifeDesk materials are public domain or released under a creative commons license that allows for the creation of derivative works.
  • The final content type I want to mention is bibliographic references. References you upload are automatically organized into a bibliography, and they will be displayed on relevant taxon pages
  • References can be added by hand or imported in a number of different ways Demo import from PubMed or DOI
  • Be sure to select relevant taxa from the classification Refrences are then automatically placed in taxon pages.
  • Also can import from a variety of different reference management programs.

  • be sure to give your collaborators editor privileges if you want them to be able to work on the classification!
