Recommendation of the month: Mammoth Project.

In January 2010 Quentin Wheeler and his collaborators at Microsoft and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts applied for National Science Foundation funding to create digital type specimens—“e-types”—for the more than one million known insects. This is action is part the Mammoth Project which plans to digitize the archives of the world's natural history museums using Microsoft's Photosynth software. It is possible to generate an e-type taking around 100 images and stitch them into a three-dimensional model using Microsoft’s Photosynth. This method could dramatically speed up the classification and identification of species. More information...

The Coordination Unit of the Spanish GBIF node organises the first workshop on Spatial Data Infraestructures (SDI). This workshop will focus on the service offered by the Spatial Data Infraestructures (SDI) and their application on GBIF. The main goal of the SDI's is to integrate the geographic information from different sources and make it available for user either by checking it on line or by downloading this information. It will take place in June from the 7th to the 9th 2010 in the computing facility of The Royal Botanical Garden (CSIC). The deadline to send pre-subscription forms is May the 13th, 2010 More information...

Recommendation of the month.

The country's natural wealth is a privilege and has an enormous potential for development, but also presents a great social responsibility before the world. The study, Natural Capital of Mexico, coordinated by the National Commission for Knowledge and Use of Biodiversity (CONABIO), is an ambitious project that compiles and analyzes the most current and reliable knowledge that exists worldwide, on the mega-biodiversity of this nation. What we would like to remark here is the enormous effort of collaboration that this project represents. The first three volumes, comprise 45 chapters, involving 96 external reviewers and 648 authors from 227 institutions, both academic and governmental, and civil organizations from most of the States of the Republic.
