Join Symbiota the first Monday of every month for opportunities for discussion, collaboration, and questions. All curators, managers, and portal users are invited to attend. Topic suggestions for future meetings are welcome. Symbiota is an open-source software for managing and mobilizing biodiversity data. All meetings will happen in Zoom. Click here to join.

Over the span of 20 years, Symbiota has developed into a distributed network of theme-based research portals incorporating data from over 1,400 biodiversity collections of preserved plants, animals, fossils, fungi, and more.  The 45 existing Symbiota portals publish over 9 million images and 70 million occurrences.

Symbiota is specifically designed toward efficient, collaborative digitization and an open data exploration and publishing tool.

Upcoming meetings include:

December 6th, 12:00-1:00 PM PST / 3:00-4:00 PM ET. The meeting this month will cover GitHub (how to use it) and the Symbiota Resources found there.  We’ll demonstrate how to use the discussion page to report issues, engage with other users, etc. Click here to join.
