Title: Global Information System for Lichenized and Non-Lichenized Ascomycetes
Title abbreviated: LIAS
Creator: Botanische Staatssammlung München <München>
Abstract: LIAS is a multi-authored information system for the collection and distribution of descriptive and other biodiversity data on lichens and non-lichenized ascomycetes. The goal is (a) to provide a working space for cooperation and collaboration of experts on ascomycetes in the Internet, (b) to establish a multi-authored worldwide database on descriptive data of all ascomycetes, (c) to design user-friendly web tools for an easier access and remote editing of database records via Internet, (d) to offer a online database system for multiple usage and therewith dissemination of expert knowledge especially by providing public access to database generated identification keys and natural language description of ascomycetes, (e) to promote the gathering, furnishing and administration of data by experts in a standard database system which allows an information deposit for individual use only (e. g. for revision) and – after agreement – the public access to the data via Internet, (f) to promote common standards on descriptive data connected with taxonomic names of ascomycetes to facilitate interoperability and data exchange. The vision of LIAS is to establish a non-commercial global information system of advanced technology where published biodiversity data of all ascomycetes are joint in a multi-authored database and used for the most sophisticated queries.
