This study combines DNA analysis of present-day Pacific gray whales and fossils—including newly reported specimens from the North Sea—with predictive habitat models to suggest the usefulness of keeping watch for future climate-driven dispersals of this Arctic sentinel species.
Bioversity International, an Associate Participant of GBIF, is co-organizing the international conference on Enhanced Genepool Utilization - Capturing wild relative and landrace diversity for crop improvement.
The training event will introduce participants to the BioVeL project, and teach the attendees how to (1) run workflows via the BioVeL portal, (2) develop workflows using the Taverna workbench, (3) register and discover services in the biodiversity catalogue and (4) share workflows via myExperime
The training workshop will teach the attendees in using the informatic tools and services developed by the BioVeL project to address research topics such as historical analyses, invasive species distribution modelling, endangered species distribution modelling, and dynamic modelling of ecologica
The first day of the meeting provided the participants with an overview of technologies and tools to be used in developing the GBIF network. The remaining sessions involved discussion of the challenges and opportunities facing different GBIF Participants as they each develop a GBIF Node.
