GLOMIS - GLObal Mangrove database & Information System
Title: GLOMIS - GLObal Mangrove database & Information System
Title abbreviated: GLOMIS
Publisher: International Society for Mangrove Ecosystems (ISME)
Abstract: Major objectives of GLOMIS are: (1) To construct a database with the characteristics of single mangrove species and of mangrove ecosystems; (2) To disseminate worldwide the information stored in the Database; (3) To focus on the functioning, management and rational uses of single species of mangroves and of entire mangrove ecosystems, including local environmental and socio-economic inplications for coastal communities; (4) Organize, maintain and up-date at regular intervals the information system which is meant for the use of forestry, ficheries, law-makers and administrators, decision makers and users at large. This first phase of GLOMIS consists of a searchable database of scientific literature relating to mangroves, institutions and scientists working on all aspects of mangroves, as well as regional projects and programmes related to mangroves. We believe that GLOMIS is ready to be opened on the Web although refinements, improvements and corrections will always be needed. [Information of the supplier]
