Dear Taxacomist,

TDWG, the Biodiversity Information Standards organization, exists to  
help people share their biodiversity data.


As part of this work the TDWG Infrastructure Project (http:// 
www.tdwg.org/activities/tip/) has developed a Technical Survey to:

1. Reach a better understanding of the technical skills of people who  
use or may use TDWG standards and literature.

2. Reach a better understanding of the skills and resources available  
for the development of new biodiversity data standards and  

I am sure you appreciate the importance of the exchange of data to  
progressing the understanding and conservation of biodiversity. You  
can help improve this flow of data by taking the survey. It can be  
found at:


The survey is mainly tick boxes and will only take 5 to 15 minutes.

The more people involved in biodiversity science who take the survey  
the better so if you have colleagues who might make use of TDWG  
products in the future, please pass this request to them.

Many Thanks

Roger Hyam
