The United Nations 65th General Assembly (UNGA) has approved the creation of an Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES). Read the press release here.

The new body will bridge the gulf between the wealth of scientific knowledge on the accelerating declines and degradation of the natural world, with knowledge on effective solutions and decisive government action required to reverse these damaging trends. Its various roles will include carrying out high-quality peer reviews of the wealth of science on biodiversity and ecosystem services emerging from research institutes across the globe in order to provide gold standard reports to governments.

The UNGA adoption was the final stage of approval needed to establish IPBES, and discussions on the 1st IPBES plenary will be taken further at the UNEP Governing Council meeting in February. The plenary will then be organised for later in 2011 More information...

Second call for proposals for the GBIF Young Researchers Award

The main objective of the award is to foster innovative research and discovery in biodiversity informatics by graduate students in masters and doctorate programs at universities in countries participating in the GBIF network.  The first two Young Researcher Awardees were Ms. Amy McDougall from the University of East Anglia (UK) and Mr. Andrés Lira-Noriega from the the University of Kansas (http://www.gbif.org/communications/news-and-events/showsingle/article/young-researchers-impress-gbif-science-committee). It is expected that the awards will stimulate graduate students to develop new research in biodiversity informatics and also serve as an outreach mechanism to universities. Two awards of Euro 4,000 each will be made available fow the winners. Applicants can obtain details regarding the submission of proposals and other information from the national GBIF node. In Spain, applications must be submitted to the Coordination Unit of the Spanish GBIF Node to info@gbif.es before March the 1st 2011. More information...

Herbar Zoorbar Ligero Beta 4 available for download

It is now available the new version HZL Beta 4. Herbar Zoorbar Ligero is a computer application designed to manage and digitize either Botanical Collections or Zoological Collections. Its main goal is making the data exchange easier for users by using fast recording tables so, it is not neccesary to work with the complete versions of Zoorbar or Herbar.

Please find further information (in Spanish) about HZL on the following link: http://www.gbif.es/hzl/hzl.php
