Sierra Nevada Global Change Observatory Member Node
As part of EU BON, the Sierra Nevada Global Change Observatory is interested in becoming a MN.
Per an email from Hannu Saarenmaa, 3/6/14:
"...it was agreed that the Sierra Nevada Global Change Observatory will take the steps for becoming a MN. The work can be started first in late April, when the responsible person Francisco Bonet returns from some extensive travel. He will be in touch with you."
Also from previous discussions:
(Hannu 10/7/13) Many EU BON partners are GBIF nodes. Hence use of GBIF IPT for data sharing is widespread. We are looking forward to enchance the IPT so that it can better handle ecological data. New terms are being added to the Darwin Core standard for that purpose.
