SEEK: Science Environment for Ecological Knowledge

  The goals of the project are to make fundamental improvements in how researchers can
1) gain global access to ecological data and information,
2) rapidly locate and utilize distributed computational services, and
3) exercise powerful new methods for capturing, reproducing, and extending the analysis process itself.
The project involves a multidisciplinary team of computer scientists, ecologists and technologists from the Partnership for Biodiversity Informatics (PBI), a consortium comprising the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS); the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC); the University of Kansas (KU); and the University of New Mexico (UNM) and partnering institutions (Arizona State University, University of North Carolina, University of Vermont, and Napier University in Scotland).
The SEEK project website The Napier team are part of the Taxon Working Group in SEEK and are developing standards for modelling taxonomic concepts and Visualisation tools for comparing taxonomic concepts.
