Projects

  • Biodiversity Informatics NHM pages

    Workflow and issues on the Biodiversity Informatics NHM pages

  • NHM Data Portal

    The portal will provide a foundation to focus research efforts on the exploitation of NHM collections and research data. Using this portal, one could compute scores on how much, and what kind of, information is available within the NHM for any particular taxon and its relatives, generating new questions for further study. It would be possible to test and deploy new algorithmic approaches to understand better the causes and consequences of species diversification, and the changing distribution of species over space and time. It might even be possible to develop large-scale standing analyses that alert researchers to new evidence that challenges existing knowledge, indicating where research is needed. The portal will be the foundation for a vibrant biodiversity science within the NHM, but also provide a mechanism for community cohesion and for clear messages about the central importance of taxonomy on a rapidly-changing planet....
