  • “ To set up the means, tools and infrastructure to produce a more rational and a more effective framework for European Biodiversity research”
  • Terrestrial data logging

    1. 1. Terrestrial data logging Alexander S. Kroupa Museum für Naturkunde Berlin [email_address] Workpackage 8 Ecological and conservation data mobilisation ViBRANT Virtual Biodiversity
    2. 2. Who we are & what we do <ul><li>Since 2009 the Museum für Naturkunde is constituted as an independent Foundation as a member of the Leibniz Association </li></ul><ul><li>The focus of research and education lies on biodiversity, biological evolution, and earth sciences </li></ul><ul><li>Some facts: - around 70 permanent scientific staff - 30 mio scientific specimens - several general and high-end laboratories - a large scientific library (>175,000 titles, >1,000 journals) </li></ul><ul><li>MfN has been participating and taking a leading role in several EU - projects both under FP6 and FP7, such as SYNTHESYS (I3), the European Distributed Institute of Taxonomy (EDIT), Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL) – Europe, and 4D4Life </li></ul><ul><li>MfN has been partnering with Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), and PalaeoBase </li></ul>5
    3. 3. What we will do in ViBRANT <ul><li>MfN will engage in mobilizing users from professional and non-professional biodiversity inventorying and monitoring initiatives </li></ul><ul><li>Support the development and adaptation of specific software applications, especially for conservation-oriented biodiversity monitoring schemes </li></ul><ul><li>MfN will also provide field-based tools and technologies developed during the EDIT ABTI+M program </li></ul>5
    4. 4. How we are doing it <ul><li>Develop a separate scratchpad module: - to promote digital field recording - provide information about and access to available field recording tools and technologies - provide information about standardized digital data capture and protocols </li></ul><ul><li>Using networks and user communities built around the ATBI+M pilot sites established by EDIT in selected protected areas </li></ul><ul><li>Building a network and a user community, using a scratchpad application </li></ul>5
    5. 5. Who are our users & how will they engage? <ul><li>Professional and non-professional biodiversity inventorying and monitoring initiatives </li></ul><ul><li>Experts (e.g. from museums) and citizen science activities (e.g. from nature conservation organisations) </li></ul><ul><li>Stakeholders actively involved in ecological and conservation-oriented biodiversity monitoring schemes </li></ul>5
