Introduction to the data portal
A collaborative global freshwater biodiversity data hub
The aim of this data portal, which we are building in the framework of
is to help scientists to advertise and publish their data(base) and to
provide tools for the discovery, integration and analysis of open and
freely accessible freshwater biodiversity data.
Advertise and/or publish your data on freshwater biodiversity
In order to reach the above mentioned goal, we want to integrate a large
amount of databases in the metadatabase and the occurrence database. We would
appreciate your support by
- documenting your database in the
- submitting/publishing data or by
- producing a data paper.
