Biodiversity and Ecoinformatics, Work- and Dataflows

The compilation, modelling, processing, analysis, sustainable archiving and the re-appropriation of biodiversity data is currently moving into the center of attention of ecological research activity. Organisms and their identity, properties (including morphological and anatomical characteristics, furthermore natural compounds and behavior), occurrence, origins (“space-time-acquisition”), alternating relations and their effect on the environment are the respective subject-matters. There exist a number of information systems, respectively internet platforms, storing and analyzing biodiversity data of different institutions, initiatives and research projects. The field of ecoinformatics is dedicated to the development of IT-concepts and -applications to administer and analyze ecological data on an ecosystem level. Hereby, also a multitude of quantitative data is being acquired next to the descriptive qualitative data. Within the framework of the projects “BMBF-BIOTA” and “GBIF-Germany”, the EU-project “4D4 Life” and the DFG-project “DiversityMobile, I-B-F, Teilprojekt I-B-F Eco” database applications and interfaces or tools for data analysis have been and still are being developed and implemented in cooperation with the IT-Center of the “Staatliche Naturwissenschaftliche Sammlungen Bayerns”. The aim is to process and publish primary research data online. Our group takes part in the setup of the following applications, information systems and data portals:
