Conference Paper
Full-text available
With digitisation of natural history collections over the past decades, their traditional roles — for taxonomic studies and public education — have been greatly expanded into the fields of biodiversity assessments, climate change impact studies, trait analyses, sequencing, 3D object analyses etc. (Nelson and Ellis 2019; Watanabe 2019). Initial esti...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
DiSSCo – the Distributed System of Scientific Collections – will mobilise, unify and deliver bio- and geo-diversity information at the scale, form and precision required by scientific communities, and thereby transform a fragmented landscape into a coherent and responsive research infrastructure. At present DiSSCo has 115 partners from 21 countries...
Article
Full-text available
Specimens held in private natural history collections form an essential, but often neglected part of the specimens held worldwide in natural history collections. When engaging in regional, national or international initiatives aimed at increasing the accessibility of biodiversity data, it is paramount to include private collections as much and as o...
Article
Sandy beach food webs depend heavily upon marine organic input, such as macroalgae, as internal organic matter productivity is low. The fate, however, of this marine organic material (termed wrack) after being deposited onto the beach and its relation to pioneer vegetation, consisting of annual and perennial beach plants, needs to be further elucid...
Technical Report
Full-text available
There is a growing need to set data-driven priorities when planning for the digitisation of European natural history collections. Currently, there is no single location where the required information is gathered and where it can be easily consulted and used by decision-makers and scientists. In particular, the information on digitised and non-digit...
Technical Report
Full-text available
This report will address how private collections can be included in Europe’s digitisation efforts. First, it is necessary to identify the current volume, scope and level of digitisation of private collections within Europe to have a better view of the background and inform our next steps. Secondly, a protocol to keep this inventory up to date in th...
Article
Full-text available
Artifical sand replenishments are globally used as innovative coastal protection measures. In these replenishments elevated pore water concentrations of trace elements are found. This study investigated possible ecotoxicological risks at two intertidal depositional sites, the Sand Engine (SE) as a recent innovative Dutch coastal management project,...
Technical Report
Full-text available
Anno 2017 the task of mobilizing data from biocollections ahead of us is still enormous (data of 90% of the biocollections still needs to be mobilized). It is imperative for stakeholders, individual keepers of natural science collections, the community at large, and even for funding agencies, not only to tackle this backlog as quickly as possible,...
Preprint
Full-text available
ICEDIG is a design study for the new research infrastructure Distributed System of Scientific Collections (DiSSCo), focusing on the issues around digitisation of the collections and making their data freely and openly available following the FAIR principles (data being Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable). As a design study, ICEDIG...
Article
Full-text available
Suboptimal environmental conditions are ubiquitous in nature and commonly drive the outcome of biological interactions in community processes. Despite the importance of biological interactions for community processes, knowledge on how species interactions are affected by a limiting resource, for example, low food availability, remains limited. Here...
Article
Full-text available
Moss‐dominated peat bogs store approximately 30% of global soil carbon. A climate induced‐shift from current moss‐dominated conditions to tree‐dominated states is expected to strongly affect their functioning and carbon sequestration capacity. Consequently, unravelling the mechanisms that may explain successful tree seedling establishment in these...

Project
ICEDIG – “Innovation and consolidation for large scale digitisation of natural heritage” - is an EU-funded project that aims at supporting the implementation phase of the new Research Infrastructure DiSSCo (“Distributed System of Scientific Collections”) by designing and addressing the technical, financial, policy and governance aspects necessary to operate such a large distributed initiative for natural sciences collections across Europe. more at www.icedig.eu
