— Real-time automatic and continuous information gathering through EcoGrid offers an unique and immense opportunity for long term ecological monitoring and planning. However, the vast amount of raw data gathered must be dealt with efficiently and effectively so that they may be timely turned into useable information to assist ecological management. In(More)
BioOne (www.bioone.org) is a a nonprofit, online aggregation of core research in the biological, ecological, and environmental sciences. BioOne provides a sustainable online platform for over 170 journals and books published by nonprofit societies, associations, museums, institutions, and presses. Usage of BioOne content is strictly limited to personal,(More)
The study of fish populations in their own natural environment is a task that has usually been tackled in invasive ways which inevitably influenced the behavior of the fish under observation. Recent projects involving the installation of permanent underwater cameras (e.g. the Fish4Knowledge (F4K) project, for the observation of Taiwan’s coral reefs) allow(More)
We present a research tool that supports marine ecologists' research by allowing analysis of long-term and continuous fish monitoring video content. The analysis can be used for instance to discover ecological phenomena such as changes in fish abundance and species composition over time and area. Two characteristics set our system apart from traditional(More)
The management of real-time streaming data in large-scale collaborative applications presents major processing , communication and administrative challenges. To that end, an open-source RBNB DataTurbine provides an excellent basis for developing robust streaming data middleware. The current RBNB DataTurbine streaming data middleware system satisfies a core(More)
Freshwater lakes provide a number of important ecosystem services such as supply of drinking water, support of biotic diversity, transportation of commercial goods, and opportunity for recreation. Wireless sensor networks allow continuous, fine-grained, in situ measurements of key variables such as water temperature, dissolved gases, pH, conductivity, and(More)
Electron tomography is a powerful technique for deriving 3D structural information from biological specimens. As advanced instrumentation, networking, and grid computing are applied to electron tomography and biological sciences in general, much work is needed to integrate and coordinate these advanced technologies in a transparent way to deliver them to(More)
Long-term monitoring of the underwater environment is still labour intensive work. Using underwater surveillance cameras to monitor this environment has the potential advantage to make the task become less labour intensive. Also, the obtained data can be stored making the research reproducible. In this work, a system to analyse long-term underwater camera(More)
