The International Biometric Society is an international society promoting the development and application of statistical and mathematical theory and methods in the biosciences, including agriculture, biomedical science and public health, ecology, environmental sciences, forestry, and allied disciplines. The Society welcomes as members statisticians, mathematicians, biological scientists, and others devoted to interdisciplinary efforts in advancing the collection and interpretation of information in the biosciences. The Society publishes two journals, Biometrics, reporting communications consistent with the Society’s mission, and, jointly with the American Statistical Association, the Journal of Agricultural, Biological, and Environmental Statistics. The Society is organized into geographically-defined Regions, each with at least 10 members. The Society is governed by an Executive Committee of General Officers and a legislative Council representing the international diversity of the membership. Regions elect their own officers and governing boards. ... [Information of the supplier]
Experimental Biology is the study of the form and function of animals and plants at all levels of organisation from the molecular and cellular to the whole organism. The ethos of Experimental Biology is one of interdisciplinary studies usually conducted within the context of the environment and evolution of the organism. The Society for Experimental Biology believes that the broad nature and lack of “ology” boundaries implicit in Experimental Biology give it a pivotal role in the development of Life Sciences which are of considerable benefit to its members and to society. In particular, Experimental Biology contributes to knowledge that can be applied to the development of agriculture and medicine and to understanding the impacts of human activity on living organisms and ecosystems. ...

BiNHum is a joint project of five natural history museums and research collections representing the Humboldt-Ring. These are the State Museums of Natural History Karlsruhe (SMNK) and Stuttgart (SMNS), the Zoological Research Museum Alexander Koenig in Bonn (ZFMK), the Bavarian Natural History Collections in Munich (SNSB), and the Botanic Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem (BGBM).The three-year project (2012–2015) will enforce collaboration and consolidate collection data of the Humboldt-Ring institutes and their associates by development of a joint data portal and efforts in data mining, standardisation, new data types as 3D images e.g., or data digitized by the sub-project MORPHYLL at the SMNS (DFG support code RO 3250/21, acquisition of ecophysiologically relevant morphometric data of fossil leaves), and data porting to current IT standards. Additionally, the portal will provide all accessible data to international projects as GBIF. ... [Information of the supplier]
