  • The updated home page was accepted with minor changes by the project partners.
  • The users received insights into the workflow of GoldenGate Taxonomy. GoldenGate Ecology was recognized as being a useful tool for processing data contained in the ecological literature for Edaphobase.

  • These tables contain additional information, as far as possible completed by the GBIF-Partners.
