uBioRSS : tracking taxonomic literature using RSS
(Oxford University Press, 2007-03-28)
Web content syndication through standard formats such as RSS and ATOM has become an increasingly popular mechanism for publishers, news sources, and blogs to disseminate regularly updated content. These standardized ...
LigerCat : using “MeSH clouds” from journal, article, or gene citations to facilitate the identification of relevant biomedical literature
(American Medical Informatics Association, 2009-11-14)
The identification of relevant literature from within large collections is often a challenging endeavor. In the context of indexed resources, such as MEDLINE, it has been shown that keywords from a controlled vocabulary ...
The taxonomic significance of species that have only been observed once : the genus Gymnodinium (Dinoflagellata) as an example
(Public Library of Science, 2012-08-30)
Taxonomists have been tasked with cataloguing and quantifying the Earth’s biodiversity. Their progress is measured in code-compliant species descriptions that include text, images, type material and molecular sequences. ...
Mapping the biosphere : exploring species to understand the origin, organization and sustainability of biodiversity
(Taylor & Francis, 2012-03-27)
The time is ripe for a comprehensive mission to explore and document Earth's species. This calls for a campaign to educate and inspire the next generation of professional and citizen species explorers, investments in ...
Building research networks to support campus programs [poster]

The taxonomic name resolution service : an online tool for automated standardization of plant names
(BioMed Central, 2013-01-16)
The digitization of biodiversity data is leading to the widespread application of taxon names that are superfluous, ambiguous or incorrect, resulting in mismatched records and inflated species numbers. The ultimate ...
Envisioning the future of science libraries at academic research institutions : a discussion
A group of librarians, other information professionals, scientists and research administrators met to discuss the challenges that research libraries are currently facing. After the meeting a survey was conducted to obtain ...
Biological nomenclature terms for facilitating communication in the naming of organisms
A set of terms recommended for use in facilitating communication in biological nomenclature is presented as a table showing broadly equivalent terms used in the traditional Codes of nomenclature. These terms are intended ...
Broadly sampled multigene analyses yield a well-resolved eukaryotic tree of life
An accurate reconstruction of the eukaryotic tree of life is essential to identify the innovations underlying the diversity of microbial and macroscopic (e.g. plants and animals) eukaryotes. Previous work has divided ...
Intra- and interspecies differences in growth and toxicity of Pseudo-nitzschia while using different nitrogen sources
Clonal cultures of plankton are widely used in laboratory experiments and have contributed greatly to knowledge of microbial systems. However, many physiological characteristics vary drastically between strains of the ...
