The study of biodiversity spans many disciplines and includes data pertaining to species distributions and abundances, genetic sequences, trait measurements, and ecological niches, complemented by information on collection and measurement protocols. A review of the current landscape of metadata standards and ontologies in biodiversity science suggests that(More)
TrfA is the only plasmid-encoded protein required for RK2 replication. We report here the construction and characterization of an RK2-based vector in which trfA is expressed from the inducible promoter Pm. The resulting construct, pJBSD1, was found to replicate in Escherichia coli DH5a (recA(-)) only in the presence of a Pm inducer. In two tested E. coli(More)
Recent studies have shown that novel genetic variation for resistance to pests and diseases can be detected in plant genetic resources originating from locations with an environmental profile similar to the collection sites of a reference set of accessions with known resistance, based on the Focused Identification of Germplasm Strategy (FIGS) approach. FIGS(More)

Georeferenced species data have a wide range of applications and are increasingly used for e.g. distribution modelling and climate change studies. As an integrated part of an on-going survey programme for vegetation mapping, plant species have been recorded. The data described in this paper contains 18.521 registrations of plants from 1190 different(More)
