1 NL ratified the Convention of Biological Diversity: The conservation of biodiversity Sustainable use of the components of biodiversity Sharing the benefits arising from (commercial) utilization of genetic resources in a fair and equitable way NL signed MoU with GBIF Purpose of GBIF: to make the world's primary data on biodiversity freely and universally available via the Internet.

2 Both biodiversity and biodiversity data are unevenly distributed around the world: Developing World Biodiversity Biodiversity Data Developed World GBIF was established, in large part, to redress the inequality of data distribution

3 Stichting NLBIF: Dutch Node of GBIF Netherlands Biodiversity Information Facility Objectives: Sharing of biodiversity data, information and know-how available in the Netherlands Providing access for Dutch users to biodiversity data, information and know-how in other countries Develop ICT tools for data management, analysis, exchange, and electronic dissemination worldwide

7 Netherlands Biodiversity Information Facility Slow start, most projects launched in 2003 Budget: ca. 400,000 / year until March 2006, probably extension http://www.nlbif.nl/ Biodiversity databases on-line Connect these databases to GBIF via DiGIR Training in GBIF software (DiGIR, CIRCA, etc.) Species Banks

8 Type species: Anacropora forbesi Ridley, 1884 Total number of species estimated: 3. Characteristics: Corals zooxanthellate, thinly branched...... Ecology: Rare; if present, the corals are usually found in large patches....... Range: From Seychelles to Fiji in the central Pacific. Additional remarks: Due to their fragile shape, corals of this genus indicate reef environments with little turbulence. Key references: Veron and Wallace, 1984; Veron, 1986, 2000.

9 Inventory of Dutch institutes and organisations holding biodiversity information Biodiversity data in the Netherlands: Who is who?  names, addresses, websites Who has what?  collections, observations expertise Metadatabase

10 Fund raising with collection institutes and VOFF to  bring biodiversity information on-line  digitise natural history collections  develop on-line Species Banks  supply electronic catalogues of names  connect biodiversity databases to GBIF (via DiGIR) Future activities of NLBIF

13 NLBIF will keep Data Providers informed on the development of policy documents by GBIF, ENBI, BioCASE on Data Sharing Agreement Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Data Use Agreement On-line databases: responsibility of institutes ZMA, CBS, NHN already developed policy documents for their databases

14 Zoological Museum of Amsterdam UvA is owner of all information Data can only be used for non-commercial purposes Copy data only for educational or research purposes Proper acknowledgement of data Not allowed to publish without permission of UvA (www.nationaalherbarium.nl/virtual/copyrights.htm).www.nationaalherbarium.nl/virtual/copyrights.htm Centraal Bureau voor Schimmelcultures (www.cbs.knaw.nl/disclaimer/index.htm)www.cbs.knaw.nl/disclaimer/index.htm

15 GBIF Data Sharing Agreement Universally available to all users (incl. commercial users?) Ownership remains with data providers providers can stop providing data any moment Each record provided with Globally Unique Identifier Restriction of access to sensitive data (endangered species) responsibility lies with Data Providers

16 GBIF Principles on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and Data Use GBIF encourages free dissemination of biodiversity data without Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) respect conditions set by data providers no limitations on further non-commercial use Users -> respect restriction of access to sensitive data -> publicly acknowledge source of data

17 NLBIF criteria for funding projects: Fit within objectives of NLBIF ICT work to publish digitised data on-line and connect to GBIF Preferably in cooperation with ETI Project proposal + work plan + budget + time schedule contact NLBIF!
