Using the GRID for biodiversity research: The GRAB demonstrator

Using the GRID for biodiversity research: The GRAB demonstrator

In the GRAB (Grid and Biodiversity) project we are developing a prototype to illustrate some aspects of the GRID's potential for collaborative biodiversity research. A catalogue of life, two species information systems (SISs) and a climate database are made available in a problem solving environment that demonstrates how bioclimatic modelling can be performed by bringing together such resources. We use Globus to provide access to these resources, in a secure environment. We also discuss more generally the GRID's potential for biodiversity research, and identify the main areas of development within the GRID that are needed to support such research.

Abstract

In the GRAB (Grid and Biodiversity) project we are developing a prototype to illustrate some aspects of the GRID's potential for collaborative biodiversity research. A catalogue of life, two species information systems (SISs) and a climate database are made available in a problem solving environment that demonstrates how bioclimatic modelling can be performed by bringing together such resources. We use Globus to provide access to these resources, in a secure environment. We also discuss more generally the GRID's potential for biodiversity research, and identify the main areas of development within the GRID that are needed to support such research.
