European Register of Marine Species version 2.0

data management, current status and plans for the future

Ocean Biodiversity Information – 29/11-1/12/2004


Erms overview

ERMS overview

  • European Register of Marine Species

  • Result of EU project, 10 partners

  • Managed by SMEBD

  • Will form taxonomic backbone of EurOBIS and MarBEF data management

  • Will be updated

Ocean Biodiversity Information – 29/11-1/12/2004


Erms v 1 0

ERMS v 1.0

  • EU project (MAST)

    • 2 years: 1998-1999

    • 19 contractual partners

      • responsible for data management, promotion of the product, dialogue with end users…

    • 100+ editors of taxonomic lists

      • not necessarily from the partner institutions

      • responsible for the content

Ocean Biodiversity Information – 29/11-1/12/2004


Erms v 1 0 content

ERMS v 1.0 content

  • List of names

  • Synonymy for some groups

  • Very limited distribution information

    • level of major sea area (Atlantic, Mediterranean,…)

    • very incomplete

Erms taxonomic scope

ERMS taxonomic scope

  • Multicellular organisms

    • Animals, plants, macroorganisms

  • Protoctista not part of the original plan

    • Gaps exist

ERMS v 1.0 availability

Ocean Biodiversity Information – 29/11-1/12/2004


Erms v 1 0 weaknesses

ERMS v 1.0 weaknesses

  • Taxonomic gaps

  • Set of excel sheets, no proper database

    • Checklists, some created from scratch, some compilations of existing regional lists

    • No hierarchy

  • Detail available varies across checklists

    • distribution info, synonymy, literature…

  • No integration between checklists

  • Programme-based, no continuation

Ocean Biodiversity Information – 29/11-1/12/2004


Smebd

SMEBD

  • Society for the Management of European Biodiversity Data

    • All data contributors are members of the society

    • Society manages intellectual property right on behalf of authors

    • ERMS authors, discussions to include also Fauna Europaea authors

Ocean Biodiversity Information – 29/11-1/12/2004


Marbef

MarBEF

  • Marine Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning

  • EU FP 6 ‘Network of Excellence’

    • VLIZ does data management

  • Needed taxonomic authority list for integration of databases

    • EurOBIS

  • SMEBD gave mandate to VLIZ/MarBEF to manage data

Ocean Biodiversity Information – 29/11-1/12/2004


Erms v 1 1

ERMS v 1.1

  • Integrating spreadsheets in one relational database

    • MS SQL Server, front end Access

    • Structure is open hierarchy (± ITIS)

  • Content remains same as ERMS 1.0

    • some inconsistencies removed

  • But adding taxonomic hierarchy

Erms v 2 0

ERMS v 2.0

  • Content will be updated

    • through web interface

    • snapshot frozen and archived at regular intervals

  • Structure revised to allow audit trail

    • who did what, when

  • Taxon editors have been invited

  • Extra information (not strictly ERMS)

    • Feeding types, distribution info (country), trophic level, biomass…

ERMS v 2.0 editorial structure

  • ERMS Editorial committee

    • Arvanitides, Bouchet, Boxshall, Costello (chair), Emblow, Vanden Berghe (db)

    • responsible for management

  • Associate editors (‘Group coordinators’ of FE)

    • responsible for part of taxonomic tree

    • have edit rights through web site

  • Review editors (‘Validation’ of FE)

    • assist associate editors
