    "The articles in Newsletter No. 7 of BHL-Europe cover a large variety of topics. The last months have seen the start of important new projects, i.e. OpenUp! and the Field Book Project. In February 2011 the close of the EDIT project was celebrated with a fi nal symposium in Paris. Some of the EDIT success stories are described in this newsletter. In February 2011, the BioSystematics conference brought hundreds of evolutionary biologists and systematists to Berlin. The BHL-Europe contribution to this conference is featured below."

    "BHL-Europe is now in the final project year. We successfully passed the second annual review meeting and received a green flag from the European Commission. We can now proceed to focus on the project objectives.Parallel to the work on the different access points to digital biodiversity literature (GRIB, BHL-Europe Portal, Europeana) we now also intensify our efforts to keep BHL-Europe operational after the end of the project. This also includes the investigation of ideas for new projects.With OpenUp! and Natural Europe, two ICT-PSP projects joined the group of biodiversity related projects this year. We will follow their progress and also investigate the collaboration potential. This BHL-Europe newsletter features the OpenUp! project with a dedicated article." [Taken from the document.]

C3.2.1 Contribution to the Global Name Architecture (GBIF/ECAT white paper)

    No. 54
    test
    "The GBIF Strategic Plan calls for the creation of a federated ECAT ‘catalogue’ implying a dedicated and discreet centrally available electronic list of names applied to the organisms of the Earth. Significant proportions of these names remain unavailable to the GBIF network yet and must be made available via a distributed provider network. Since ECAT resources are limited, to establish global and regional capacity, context and value, the decentralized GBIF network requires a close collaboration with other (global and regional) biodiversity initiatives. The ECAT-supported infrastructure that facilitates the inventorying, maintenance, creation, integration, and serving of taxonomic resources for regional and global access is not only mobilized within the GBIF Nodes, but also available through liaison with regional (e.g. EC or NSF funded) programs."

C4.3.1 Summary conclusions of symposium with what the participants envision as the roadmap" for the immediate future of taxonomic researc"

    "Understanding the origin and diversity of the living world is a cumbersome endeavour that requires a revision of traditional taxonomic practices. However, it is widely recognized that progress in the study of biodiversity in this time of crisis is hindered by a worldwide shortage of taxonomists coupled with a lack of enough funding for taxonomic study (the “Taxonomic impediment”). To overcome this impediment, it is mandatory both to adopt new technologies developed in other fields for taxonomic use, and to address the key conceptual challenges that taxonomy faces. Under the auspices of EDIT (European Distributed Institute of Taxonomy), 25 European scientists actively publishing in taxonomy, 90 EDIT members, 17 non-EDIT CETAF (Consortium of European Taxonomic Facilities) members, and 15 speakers were invited to gather in a 3-day symposium to discuss in depth future trends of taxonomy."
