5. Platform for Cybertaxonomy

  • Aims:

    1. “Integrating” the Informatics Departments

    2. Creating a software environment for taxonomists

  • Resources

    • In 2008: 14 developers, 2 support personnel,  12 full time positions+ institutional personnel

  • Development jobs

    • Software specification, development, documentation, and interfacing
