Dear Colleagues, 


You are invited to submit an abstract for the “Biodiversity Informatics”
session in the forthcoming Earth and Space Sciences Informatics programme of
the European Geosciences Union General Assembly to be held in Vienna, 19-24
April 2009. The main objective of this session is to highlight the value of
adopting informatics standards for both Biodiversity and Earth and Space
Science disciplines thereby promoting interoperability across heterogeneous
systems and, in particular, demonstrating how the kinds of observational
data mobilised by the Global Biodiversity Information Facility network can
be integrated with other geospatial data to address issues relating to
climate change, protected area management, invasive species, etc.
