The node Invertebrates II of GBIF Germany
Together with other nodes of GBIF-Germany, the node Invertebrates II shares the aim to provide free and open access to "life databases" for all people of the world. To reach this goal data from collections, museums, civil service and libraries are fused to a network and this data is provided at the international GBIF-Portal. Our Vision is a global information system which should even provide the facility of online determination in the future.
The node Invertebrates II represents the molluscs (Mollusca) the Chelicerata, with the spiders and mites, and the myriapods (Myriapoda), containing millipedes and centipedes.
The node Invertebrates II had been established during the project "GBIF-Germany: Knoten Evertebrata II (Mollusca, Chelicerata, Myriapoda)", funded between 03/01/01 and 05/12/31 by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, BMBF (grant 01LI0205).
Since 10/11/01 the node Invertebrates II is funded again by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, BMBF for the joint research project "GBIF-D, centres of excellence of innovative data mobilisation" (grant 01LI01001 B).
The node Invertebrates II has been established at the Bavarian State Collection of Zoology, Münchhausenstr. 21, 81247 Munich.
