The PLANKTON*NET data provider at the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research is an open access repository for plankton-related information. It covers all types of phytoplankton and zooplankton from marine and freshwater areas. PLANKTON*NET's greatest strength is its comprehensiveness as for the different taxa image information as well as taxonomic descriptions can be archived. PLANKTON*NET also contains a glossary with accompanying images to illustrate the term definitions. PLANKTON*NET therefore presents a vital tool for the preservation of historic data sets as well as the archival of current research results. Our OAI-PMH compliant data provider represents a node within the distributed repository architecture originally planned in EU-funded project "Plankton*Net" (visit www.planktonnet.eu). This repository, together with the other other planned nodes (planktonet@roscoff and planktonnet@lisbon) are being harvested daily by a service provider specifically dedicated to the task of disseminating plankton-related records to a vast audience (visit www.planktonnet.eu/portal). In addition, we are currently working on making Plankton*Net repositories also harvestable by GBIF using the BioCASe protocol. ... [Information of the supplier]
The Biocean database was designed to collate the extremely large volume of data collected from different deep-sea ecosystem studies conducted by Ifremer’s department of ‘Environnement Profond’ (Deep-Sea Environment). Biocean was designed to facilitate ecosystem studies in the deep sea. It represents an important new resource for deep-sea ecologists and will have wide applications in biogeography and biodiversity studies at Ifremer, but also for the international community, as faunal data are linked to the Census of Marine Life information system OBIS (Ocean Biogeographic Information System). ...
