Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper describes a computational tool developed to assess the risk of extinction of flora according to the " B " of the IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria System. The tool consists of a set of systems arranged in a micro­services architecture and performs geospatial analysis in a significant set of data in an automated manner, with relativel...
Thesis
Full-text available
The thesis investigates the application of concepts and techniques of data quality in taxonomic databases to enhance the quality of information services and systems in taxonomy. Taxonomic data are arranged and introduced in Taxonomic Data Domains in order to establish a standard and a working framework to support the proposed Taxonomic Data Quality...
Article
Full-text available
The shortage of reliable primary taxonomic data limits the description of biological taxa and the understanding of biodiversity patterns and processes, complicating biogeographical, ecological, and evolutionary studies. This deficit creates a significant taxonomic impediment to biodiversity research and conservation planning. The taxonomic impedime...
Article
Full-text available
The unprecedented size of the human population, along with its associated economic activities, has an ever‐increasing impact on global environments. Across the world, countries are concerned about the growing resource consumption and the capacity of ecosystems to provide resources. To effectively conserve biodiversity, it is essential to make indic...
Article
Full-text available
It is time to synthesize the knowledge that has been generated through more than 260 years of botanical exploration, taxonomic and, more recently, phylogenetic research throughout the world. The adoption of an updated Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) in 2011 provided the essential impetus for the development of the World Flora Online (...

Article
Full-text available
ABSTRACT Since the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in Science and Humanities published in 2003, the demand for an "open science" whose primary concern is to make research activity more transparent, more collaborative and more efficient, has grown at the academy. Added to this, the perception that the access and sharing of research da...

Full-text available
governança oficial da biodiversidade e dos serviços ecossistêmicos no Brasil é bipolar: por um lado, instituições fortes e capazes; por outro, problemas infraestruturais, processos lentos, ineficiência nas ações e conflitos jurídicos e socioecológicos. O Brasil dispõe de uma variedade de instrumentos de política e de opções de governança socioambie...
Article
Full-text available
This paper describes a visualization approach of the existing network available in Brazil to achieve the targets of the Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) for 2020 in Brazil. The approach uses the Brazilian National Biodiversity Strategies and Action Plans and other key documents to identify and map institutions, roles and actions relate...
Article
Full-text available
This paper provides a quantitative and general description of the Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden herbarium (RB) dataset. Created over a century ago, the RB currently comprises ca. 750,000 mounted specimens, with a strong representation of Brazilian flora, mainly from the Atlantic and Amazon forests. Nearly 100% of these specimens have been entered...

O herbário do Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro (RB) foi fundado em 1890, sendo hoje o maior acervo de amostras botânicas do Brasil. O conjunto de coleções que atualmente integra o "acervo do herbário RB" vai além das suas exsicatas, incluindo cerca de 700 mil espécimes que permite múltiplas utilizações de seus dados primários. Do total de amostras...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Fishing is one of the most important activities to the traditional communities from the federal conservation units of sustainable use in the Amazon Forests. Among the most importants fish species is the pirarucu (Arapaima gigas). Being threatened with overexploitation, its capture is conditioned to the annual counting method for stock assessment. T...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this article we describe the Brazilian Biodiversity Information System, which aims to provide an infrastructure for gathering, integrating, and analyzing data produced by various institutions in this area. Both its architecture and the workflow for harvesting and indexing data on species occurrences and checklists, one of the already implemented...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Biodiversity data is becoming increasingly available and its volume is growing rapidly. Integration of different related repositories is also advancing through a number of successful initiatives. This data can be given as input to sophisticated computer models for predicting potential distribution of species. As the amounts of manipulated data incr...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The herbarium of Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden (RB) is one of the most important reference collections of Brazil's diversity. The database of the herbarium is a source of data about scientific collections, providing information about taxonomic or biogeographical research. But, for several reasons, this database, like others, has many problems ass...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The present level of biodiversity depletion and loss, and the diffusion of new geotechnologies create the outlines for a new paradigm, where spatial data is extremely valuable. Quality datasets may be used to support decision-making processes in public policies related to biodiversity conservation. Specimen datasets used by the scientific community...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Information systems for biodiversity management and monitoring are effective tools for nature conservation. However, the taxonomic data are difficult to handle, considering the rate of new discoveries and constant updates of the names by the specialists. Thus, the definition of a methodology to manage and share knowledge of these researchers is nee...

Archived project
The Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) is a programme of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) that includes 16 global targets set for 2020. The aim of this project is to review progress of GSPC targets in Brazil, through a series of papers by leading national experts.
Project
There are an estimated 400,000 species of vascular plants on Earth, with some 10 percent more yet to be discovered. These plants hold answers to many of the world’s health, social, environmental and economic problems. A full inventory of plant life is vital if many threatened species are to be protected and if their full potential is to be realized before many of these species, and the possibilities they offer, become extinct. The World Flora Online (WFO) project represents a major step forward in developing a consolidated global information service on the world’s flora under the governance of the U.N. Convention on Biological Diversity, Global Strategy for Plant Conservation (GSPC) Target 1. The WFO will be an open-access, Web-based compendium of the world’s plant species. It will be a collaborative, international project, building upon existing knowledge and published Floras, checklists and revisions but will also require the collection and generation of new information on poorly known plant groups and plants in unexplored regions. For more information on the project and how to become involved, visit the WFO website at http://www.worldfloraonline.org/.
