1 ChEssBase Online database for species from deep-water chemosynthetic ecosystems integrated with OBIS Eva Ramirez-Llodra & Maria Baker National Oceanography Centre Southampton, UK

2 Census of Marine Life: global network in over 70 nations engaged in a ten-year initiative (2000 – 2010) to assess and explain the diversity, distribution, and abundance of marine life in the oceans -- past, present, and future Background ChEssBase: ChEss database  vents, seeps, whale & wood falls, OMZs OBIS: Web-based provider of global geo-referenced information on marine species for the CoML global study of the biogeography of species from deep-water chemosynthetic habitats ChEss: global study of the biogeography of species from deep-water chemosynthetic habitats: field programme, database, O&E

3 ChEssBase development Relational dynamic web-based database built in MySQL Bio and geo-referenced Simple, but we hope it covers some basic uses for biologists Aim: central source of information for biological data from chemosynthetic habitats: which species occur where, from literature & PI sample info – open to all Jan. 2005: online on ChEss web site Aug. 2005: merged with InterRidge biological database Sept. 2005: integrated with OBIS 2005 – onwards: addition of sample data (now) & regular updates

5 ChEssBase interfase > 700 species from 90 sites, ~1300 references

6 Requests for maintenance of ChEssBase  New published data (new species, new sites, etc)  Sample information (from cruises, in labs, etc)  High resolution photos and video Desbruyères (Ifremer) Macdonald (Texas A&M) Smith (Uni. Hawaii)

7 Chair International Committee and Executive Officer: Mark J. Costello Leigh Marine Laboratory, University of Auckland, New Zealand OBIS: the legacy of CoML OBIS publishes primary data on distribution of marine species available from over 200 databases It facilitates data by: searching by species, higher taxa, time, location, depth, database mapping overlaying species distributions on ocean environments enables data capture for re-use

8 Only 1/3 of total described species available online (Costello & Vanden Berghe, MEPS 316, 2006)

9 Data by depth < 100 m depth 100 – 1000 m depth > 1000 m depth
