Sherborn Symposium: Remsen


The Global Biodiversity Information Facility provides access to primary biodiversity data. It currently provides access to over 300 million data records from over 8000 different databases. Data customers expect to be able to retrieve data records organised around taxa. The challenges in integrating these data, originating in different sources, is considerable and requires access to both taxonomic and nomenclatural authority files. These challenges and the subsequent capabilities these resources enables are presented.
