Semantic enrichment and mobilization of data in distributed repositories for taxonomy and ecology: Solving a Gordian knot in the taxonomy of neotropical jumping spiders and trait-based ecological habitat assessment with spider assemblages
Available digital information on spiders (Araneae) in Germany will be integrated, enriched, standardized and analysed. A taxonomic package delivers a description scheme for salticid spiders to be integrated in the virtual research environment Diversity Workbench and a workflow to interactive identification keys and taxonomic publications. Ecological data from distributed sources are compiled, enriched in a standardized way and analysed exemplary. Semantic lists and analytical tools will be designed and integrated in Diversity Workbench and moblized through a portal by the German Arachnologische Gesellschaft.
