Facilitating citizen science on biodiversity

Citizen science initiatives provide updated quality biodiversity data, as well as mobilize and sensitize people about conservation. There are many related initiatives in our surroundings, but its potential to coordinate and contribute to scientific knowledge and effective management has not been developed yet.

We announce here a project led by the Department of Environment and Regional Policy of the Basque Government, which aims to go forward in this topic. A first step is to know the citizen science initiatives underway, so we encourage all people involved to complete the following questionnaire. In May it is planned to organize a conference where stakeholders and interested parties will discuss the answers obtained and evaluate technological and sociological options to gain efficiency in everything related to the contribution of citizens to knowledge of biodiversity.

Biodiversity Databases and GenBank Workshop

Subscription period is now open for the upcoming Workshop on Biodiversity Databases and GenBank that will take place in March 25-26, 2014. The importance of collection specimens as a pillar of the scientific methodogy in biodiversity studies is becoming increasingly recognized and accepted. This is an opportunity for natural history collections if -when publishing their data- they include links to GenBank, and make GenBank repositories link their sequences to the corresponding voucher specimens in the collection databases. This workshop focuses on how to make these linkages in a practical way. Subscription forms must be submitted to info@gbif.es before February the 21st.

Biodiversity Images Portal of Spanish Collections

In order to boost the potential of the image server of GBIF-ES – a service offered to all biodiversity projects and collections in Spain- we have made several improvements in this portal. This has been possible thanks to collections and projects all over the country. The portal allows to view images of species and specimens at high resolution. It also allows to make quick or advanced search within a single or all collections, measure the specimens, and download/print images or details on suitable resolution for DINA4 .

Currently, it is possible to browse through more than 50,000 photos published by 21 collections or projects. The cooperation and good practices of Spanish herbaria and the Iberian & Macaronesian Herbarium Association has been essential for this launch. It has also been important the key role of David Garcia San Leon (SANT Herbarium), coordinator of a multi-institutional project of digitization of herbarium specimens sponsored by the Mellon Foundation.

The portal is designed to make collections more useful and visible. Any collection, institution or project interested in being part of GBIF can have their own space and images pages on this website. In addition, the image server of GBIF.ES also offers the possibility to each participant of embedding their pictures in their own site in a simple way.
