MELnet Workshop at the IT Center of the SNSB

Second Diversity Workbench workshop for Melastomataceae specialists



Training in data management, using MelList data and real-life problems. Dr. Triebel and her staff will demonstrate the various linked tools that form the “Diversity Workbench”, such as DiversityTaxonNames (the main tool for MELlist data), DiversityAgents, DiversityGazetteers, DiversityReferences, and DiversityCollection (for typification). Everyone is welcome to work with our herbarium specimens, finding new types, using the IT tools, and discussing the handling of difficult nomenclatural situations in Diversity Workbench. People already familiar with DiversityTaxonNames may concentrate on their herbarium work (the herbarium is not far from the computer room), but should attend sections dealing with new developments.
