Article
LSI.J is a tablet-based diagnostic test battery depicting difficulties in auditory language comprehension in adolescents. Computer-based data retrieval optimizes test objectivity and reliability and eases test validation via complex statistical models. Test results may cover additional parameter. LSI.J-data can be integrated into (clinical) researc...

Presentation of the implementation of "Additivity" project on the EDIT platform for Cybertaxonomy
Poster
Full-text available
The EDIT Platform for Cybertaxonomy was initially developed as part of the EU Network of Excellence project EDIT (European Distributed Institute of Taxonomy, 2006-2011) aimed at a concertation of different taxonomic computing platforms applied in Europe. For example, it incorporated the ideas about taxon concept handling that were a core feature of...

Herbarium specimens are central to botanical science and of rising importance thanks to increasing accessibility and broadened usability. Alongside the many new uses of specimen data, sit a range of traditional uses supporting the collection of morphological data and their application to taxonomy and systematics. (Henning et al. 2018). Technical wo...
Article
Full-text available
The Platform for Cybertaxonomy (http://www.cybertaxonomy.org) is a standards-based open-source software framework covering the breadth of the taxonomic workflow, from fieldwork to publication (Ciardelli et al. 2009). It provides coupled tools for full, customized access to taxonomic data, editing and management, and collaborative team work. At the...
Article
Full-text available
Herbarium specimens have always played a central role in the classical disciplines of plant sciences and the global digitisation efforts now open new horizons. To make full use of the inherent possibilities of specimen based taxonomic descriptions corresponding workflows are needed. A crucial step in the comparative analyses of organisms is the pre...
Article
Full-text available
The Caryophyllales Network strives to assemble an online dynamic synthesis of the order Caryophyllales, uniting the current knowledge about the phylogeny of the order with up-to-date information on the individual taxa contained. Capturing taxonomic data and the decision processes involved in the definition and circumscription of the taxa requires h...
Article
Herbarium specimens have always played a central role in plant sciences and constitute the cornerstone for systematics and taxonomy. This role is further strengthened with the ongoing digitisation and growing online-availability of collections all over the globe. The increasing usability of specimens demands, however, an improved use and sustainabl...
Conference Paper
Using the angiosperm order Caryophyllales, we will provide an ex-emplar use case on optimizing the taxonomic research process with respect to delimitation and characterisation ("description") of taxa using the the European Distributed Institute of Taxonomy (EDIT) Platform for Cybertaxonomy. The workflow for sample data handling of the EDIT platform...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
One of the major design features of the Common Data Model (CDM) is the ability to store and handle taxonomic concepts (a.k.a. “potential taxa” -Berendsohn 1995 , “taxonyme” - Koperski et al. 2000, "Assertions" - Pyle 2004, "taxonomic entities" -Kennedy et al. 2005 “taxon circumscriptions”, etc.). A major driver of the critical appreciation of the...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Specimens form the falsifiable evidence used in plant systematics. Derivatives of specimens (including the specimen as the organism in the field) such as tissue and DNA samples play an increasing role in research. The EDIT Platform for Cybertaxonomy is a specialist's tool that allows to document and sustainably store all data that are used in the t...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The EDIT Common Data Model (CDM) (FUB, BGBM 2008) is the centrepiece of the EDIT Platform for Cybertaxonomy (FUB, BGBM 2011, Ciardelli et al. 2009). Building on modelling efforts reaching back to the 1990ies, it aims to combine existing standards relevant to the taxonomic domain (but often designed for data exchange) with requirements of modern tax...

The Platform for Cybertaxonomy (FUB, BGBM 2011) is an open-source software framework covering the full breadth of the taxonomic workflow, from fieldwork to data publication. It provides a set of tools for editing and management of taxonomic data (individually or collaboratively), fully customizable on-line access to that data, and other means of da...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The EDIT Platform for Cybertaxonomy is a standards based suite of software components supporting the taxonomic research workflow from field work to publication in journals and dynamic web portals (FUB, BGBM 2011). The underlying Common Data Model (CDM) covers the main biodiversity informatics foci such as names, classifications, descriptions, liter...

Describing a tool for managing taxonomic concepts and their relations in the case of Red Lists of endangered species
Article
Full-text available
Unlabelled: We present the model and implementation of a workflow that blazes a trail in systematic biology for the re-usability of character data (data on any kind of characters of pheno- and genotypes of organisms) and their additivity from specimen to taxon level. We take into account that any taxon characterization is based on a limited set of...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The proper documentation of research samples in the biological sciences and their integration as collection items in scientific collections is still a downstream process usually left to the collections and their staff. The subsequent inclusion of samples into collections inevitably favours data- and sample loss and hampers the generally demanded re...

Full-text available
Die Dokumentation von Belegen wird hauptsächlich sammlungsseitig thematisiert, aber viele Sammlungsobjekte sind zunächst Untersuchungsobjekte im Forschungsprozess. Auf der Basis der EDIT Plattform haben wir deshalb eine Lösung entwickelt, die es erleichtern soll, bereits im Forschungsprozess Untersuchungsobjekte in adäquat dokumentierte Sammlungsob...

Project
LSI.J aims to identify and to modulate language-based barriers to learning and participation in school, vocational training and everyday life. LSI.J was initially developed 2016-2019 (grant: BMAS, 01KM151111) and is to be further improved and expanded. At first, LSI.J is a tablet with 10 short tests to evaluate auditory language understanding. There is norm data for adolescents and young adults (n = 571, 14 - 22 years). Additionally, there is a web page (in german) with supporting information.
Project
The overall objective of EU Network of Excellence EDIT was to integrate European taxonomic effort within the European Research Area and to build a world leading capacity. EDIT work-package 5 was lead by the BGBM and created the “Internet Platform for Cybertaxonomy”. The EDIT Platform is an integrated software suite providing tools and support of the entire taxonomic workflow that leads to the creation of taxonomic monographs, checklists, flora and fauna treatments. The software is further developed, promoted and sustained in the framework of several projects and as a core activity of the BGBM’s Biodiversity Informatics Research Group in close cooperation with the taxonomic end-users.
