Brazil joins GBIF

 Brazil has become the latest country to join the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF), dedicated to promoting free and open access to biodiversity data. The formal step of becoming a GBIF Participant was the signature of the GBIF Memorandum of Understanding by the Brazilian Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation, Marco Antonio Raupp. The MoU commits a country to setting up a national node to coordinate publication of biodiversity data, and brings it into a collaborative global community sharing tools, skills and experience related to management of biological information resources.

Workshop on Biological Collections 3.0

The I3B Workshop on Biological Collections 3.0 took place in October 8th-11th in Villa de Leyva (Colombia) and was organized by  SiB, Sistema de Información sobre Biodiversidad de Colombia (Instituto Alexander von Humboldt) and Spanish GBIF Node (GBIF.ES). 39 people from 12 countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, United States, Mexico, Nicaragua, Uruguay and Spain) attended the course.

The concept of this training course was to take advanced collection managers and curators from the region to the next frontier on collection management, the so-called 3.0, in which the collections must be part of a global information system on biodiversity science, management and conservation. The workshop addressed the latest technologies and approaches in this matter such as interoperability, images, semantic web, identifiers, connection to environmental and molecular databases, GBIF, etc.

 All resources used during the training sessions can be downloaded from its web page.

Climate change at the GBIF Science Symposium 2012

Eight researchers presented their work making use of data accessed through GBIF at the annual science symposium, organized alongside the GBIF governing board meeting, taking place in September the 19th in Lillehammer. The symposium’s title was GBIF at work – biodiversity data at the service of science and society, and a major focus was the use of data from observations and natural history collections to help predict the impacts of climate change on species and ecosystems. Sever al speakers highlighted that habitats such as coral reefs or the Arctic region are among the most vulnerable to global warming. Governments are aiming to agree a pact by 2015 to slow climate change, entering into force by 2020.
