DEST

Ausgeschrieben: 
Distributed European School of Taxonomy
Beschreibung: 
EDIT (European Distributed Institute of Taxonomy) and other international partners established a European state-of-the art School of Taxonomy: the Distributed European School of Taxonomy (DEST) in order to transfer knowledge between current and future generations of taxonomists. DEST provides a high quality training that prepares students for future taxonomic careers. Part of EDIT’s financial means supported trainees to attend the courses by issuing individual grants.

neglected and underutilized species of plants
Beschreibung: 
Around the world, many communities depend on plant species that are outside the mainstream of agricultural research and development. These species are often referred to as 'neglected and underutilized species' or 'orphan crops'. Modern agriculture is focused on the cultivation of three major staple crops - rice, maize and wheat - which provide half of the global human requirement for proteins and calories. Yet around the world, around 7,000 plant species are cultivated or harvested from the wild for food and their contribution to nutrition security is poorly appreciated. Why are they important?

North Africa Network (LOOP) of BioNET-INTERNATIONAL
Beschreibung: 
There is deep common concern throughout the North African region over environmental sustainability issues, many of which can be better managed given adequate taxonomic services. Priorities include reducing pesticide pollution; the identification, control and eradication of invasive alien species and the irreversible loss of genetic resources through ongoing habitat destruction. Capacities for the assessment, study and systematic observation and evaluation of biodiversity need to be reinforced at both national and sub-regional levels. A national and sub-regional initiative supported by international cooperation is an effective means to assisting with the protection of the ecosystems and the conservation of biological and genetic resources.

South America Southern Cone Netzwerk (LOOP) of the BioNET-INTERNATIONAL
Beschreibung: 
The South American Southern Cone region has rich and valuable biodiversity, much of it unique to the area, and abundant natural resources. The planned network includes countries with a wide range of environments and several ecoregions of unique characteristics such as the Amazon, Atlantic Forests and the "Big Chaco", which are of enormous global importance in a world facing rapid loss of its biological resources and the need to adapt to climate changes. The institutional capacity of Southern Cone countries to respond to the growing national, regional and international demand for ready access to biodiversity information and expertise is very uneven and in several cases limited by a shortage of human resources and infrastructure. Capacities for inventory, collection, curation and assessment of biodiversity need to be strongly enhanced at national and regional levels. A South American Southern Cone network for taxonomy affiliated to BioNET’s global network is considered to be the best means of achieving realistic regional self-reliance in taxonomy.

Meso and Central American Network (LOOP) of the BioNET-INTERNATIONAL
Beschreibung: 
There are several important national and regional collections in the region but these need support to ensure their ongoing development, maintenance and accessibility in appropriate forms to various users, the majority of whom are not taxonomists. As well as lack of human resources with taxonomic expertise, there is also a lack of access to a range of tools and services. Libraries and literature are often unavailable, communication and transportation are unreliable, costly or non-existent to some areas, and many potential users do not have access to, nor expertise in, up-to-date computer hardware, software and skills. Within the context of these problems, the countries strive to improve upon the current paucity of taxonomic capabilities through the MESOAMERINET network.

The Fauna Europaea project (EVR1-1999-20001) has been funded by the European Commission for a period of four years (1 March 2000 - 1 March 2004) within the Fifth Framework Programme (5FP). Fauna Europaea has assembled a database of the scientific names and distribution of all living multicellular European land and fresh-water animals.

Ecologically and Biologically Significant Marine Areas
Beschreibung: 
In 2008, the Convention on Biological Diversity adopted scientific criteria for identifying ecologically or biologically significant marine areas (EBSAs) in need of protection on the open oceans and deep seas. The 7 criteria are: 1. Uniqueness / rarity 2. Special importance for life history of species 3. Importance for threatened, endangered or declining species / habitats 4. Vulnerability, fragility, sensitivity, or slow recovery 5. Biological productivity 6. Biological diversity 7. Naturalness

Global Ocean Biodiversity Initiative
Beschreibung: 
The Global Ocean Biodiversity Initiative is an international partnership advancing the scientific basis for conserving biological diversity in the deep seas and open oceans. It aims to help countries, as well as regional and global organisations, to use and develop data, tools, and methodologies to identify ecologically significant areas in the oceans, with an initial focus on areas beyond national jurisdiction. This initiative began in late 2008 as a collaboration between the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN), IUCN, UNEP World Conservation Monitoring Centre, Marine Conservation Biology Institute, Census of Marine Life, Ocean Biogeographic Information System and the Marine Geospatial Ecology Lab of Duke University.
