You're Invited to TaxonWorks Together 2022 - What's New in TaxonWorks? What's Different? What's Next?

Hello Everyone,

Just 6 days to TaxonWorks Together 2022!

Familiar with TaxonWorks? Many of you are. Or it’s new to you and you’d like to learn more to find out the latest? Please join us 12 - 14 September for TaxonWorks Together 2022 (TWT2022). Please register (it’s free but required) and share this widely to all who might be interested. All are welcome. Please join us to find out what TaxonWorks offers you. Think nomenclature, taxonomy, matrices, biological association data, source management, checklist and key publishing, specimen data management, a robust API, and more.

Click to Register (free but required).
See the TWT2022 Agenda to learn more.
See the TaxonWorks Data Model.

Questions? We’re ready and waiting. Please do share widely to interested colleagues, students, citizen scientists, …

See you soon!
Deborah Paul, from the Species File Group as your
Biodiversity Informatics Community Liaison
PS: Join us any Wednesday for our TaxonWorks open community meetings. See Species File Group Events for details.

(Please do excuse cross-postings, but let’s do celebrate we can expand our reach together. Thanks!)

@Debbie Thanks for sharing your upcoming TaxonWorks Together 2022.

When you mentioned “biological association data”, I got all excited about finding an efficient way to let folks across institutions, platforms, and collections know about your structured biological association data [1].

How can I help prepare for the TW Together days and integrate with Taxonworks [2]?

Tracking biotic association claims across platforms, collections, and institutions.
Jorrit Poelen, Ronin Institute / UC Santa Barbara Cheadle Institute for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration
Biotic associations are all around us: parasites bug their hosts, pollinators visit flowers, and predators eat their prey. Natural history collections contain evidence supporting these claims. And, their associated specimen/data are often stored in different physical/digital locations. For instance, the Museum of Southern Biology Parasite Collection not only links to host records in their own mammal, bird, and fish collections, but also to University of Alaska Museum’s Mammal Collection, Northern Michigan University Museum of Zoology’s Mammal Collection, Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, UC Berkeley’s Mammal Collection and more. How does Global Biotic Interactions (GloBI, https://globalbioticinteractions.org) keep track of evidence supporting these biotic associations’ claims across platforms, collections and institutions?
