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)
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.

The workshop-hackathon was convened by the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) at its secretariat in Copenhag en over 22-24 May 2013 with additional support from several projects (RCN4GSC, EAGER, VertNet, BiSciCol, GGBN, and Micro B3). It assembled a team of experts to address the challeng e of adapting the Darwin Core standard for a wide(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)
