Workshop on software tools for biological collections - Bogotá (Colombia)

This workshop was organized by the Natural Sciences Institute of the Universidad Nacional in Colombia, together with the Biodiversity Information System (SIB). The objective of this theoretical and practical workshop was to create and strengthen technical capacity to digitize and manage natural history collections in Colombia. The workshop will tackle practical criteria and simple procedures that will allow collections to take informed decisions in the selection process of a digitization tool. Francisco Pando and Katia Cezón from GBIF Spain were the main instructors for the digitization tools Herbar and Zoorbar. Presentations and other materials are available at: More information...

As a result of the last GBIF Workshop on Data Papers  the first paper has already been published. Antonio Torralba-Burrial and Francisco Ocharan, responsibles for BOS-Odo collection (Biology of Organisms and Systems Department, University of Oviedo), have published Iberian Odonata distribution: data of the BOS Arthropod Collection in Zookeys journal. The workshop, held in Madrid from 19 to 21 March 2013, was intended to promote the transformation of the descriptions of the biodiversity data (metadata) into data papers using GBIF tools. Currently, other data papers are in the process of being published: 3 have been sent to Pensoft journals and are waiting to be reviewed and 7 will be submitted before summer. More information...

GBIF enables global study of climate impact on species

Climate change could dramatically reduce the geographic ranges of thousands of common plant and animal species during this century, according to research using data made freely available online through GBIF. Research published in the jornal Nature Climate Change looked at nearly 50,000 globally widespread and common species and found that more than half of the plants and over a third of animal species could lose more than half of their climatic range by 2080 if nothing is done to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

I3B Workshop on biodiversity information for environmental conservation

The Iberoamerican Infrastructure for Biodiversity Information, I3B, has accomplished the second of its four regional training and experience exchange activities planned (see the results of the first activity here). This workshop on Biodiversity information for environmental conservation was co-organized by the INBio, CRBio, CONABIO and the Spanish GBIF Node and gathered 31 participants from 9 countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Nicaragua, Venezuela and Spain) at La Selva Biological Station – OTS in Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí (Costa Rica) from April 15 to 19. The objective of this theoretical and practical workshop was to strengthen regional capacity in Latin America to use data and information technologies to support biodiversity management decisions. An additional objective was to contribute to the enhancement of global biodiversity data platforms such as GBIF already existing in Latin America. All resources used during the training sessions can be downloaded from its web page and videos will be available soon. This workshop was sponsored by CYTED that is a member of GBIF.
