Survey seeks input on using and publishing data on invasive alien species

The GBIF task group on data fitness for use in research on invasive alien species (IAS) is seeking survey responses from data users and data holders intended to help improve both the suitability and the access to data for use in invasion biology and related fields.

Through the 21-question survey, which should take 15-20 minutes to complete, the task group aims to document limitations in existing GBIF services, improve the utility of GBIF-mediated data and get suggestions on functional improvements needed to support better IAS-related research.

Take the survey now >>

The survey is open for responses until 30 September 2016, though feedback is welcome at any point. Direct your questions or comments about the survey to Dmitry Schigel, GBIF Programme Officer for Content Analysis and Use.
