Title: Science Environment for Ecological Knowledge (SEEK)
Title abbreviated: SEEK
Creator: Partnership for Biodiversity Informatics (PBI); et al.
Abstract: The Science Environment for Ecological Knowledge (SEEK) is a five year initiative designed to create cyberinfrastructure for ecological, environmental, and biodiversity research and to educate the ecological community about ecoinformatics. SEEK participants are building an integrated data grid (EcoGrid) for accessing a wide variety of ecological and biodiversity data and analytical tools (Kepler) for efficiently utilizing these data stores to advance ecological and biodiversity science. An intelligent middleware system (SMS) will facilitate integration and synthesis of data and models within these systems. The three components of the SEEK cyberinfrasture are: (1) the EcoGrid, (2) a Semantic Mediation system, and (3) an Analysis and Modeling system. These infrastructure components will be built with input and participation from three SEEK working groups: (1) Knowledge Representation, (2) Biological Taxonomy and Classification, and (3) Biodiversity and Ecological Analysis and Modeling.
