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. Register for and review Symbiota Support Group meeting recordings here.
Over the span of 20 years, Symbiota has developed into a distributed network of theme-based research portals incorporating data from over 1,900 biodiversity collections of preserved plants, animals, fossils, fungi, and more. The 56 existing Symbiota portals publish over 46 million images and +90 million occurrences.
Symbiota is specifically designed toward efficient, collaborative digitization and an open data exploration and publishing tool.
