National Science Foundation Funding will shed light on "dark data," and integrate organizmal, vocal, fossil, and ecological information Over centuries of discovery, the diversity of life on Earth has been documented in numerous ways. Records of that biodiversity are, however, often obscured in varied and distinct natural history collections, making accessing the information a difficult task. The National Science Foundation (NSF), through its Advancing Digitization of Biodiversity...

Madagascar No Longer An Evolutionary Hotspot Research Suggests
2013-07-10 16:49:38

University of Rochester Madagascar has long been known as a hotspot of biodiversity. Although it represents only one percent of the earth's area, it is home to about three percent of all animal and plant species on the planet. But research suggests the island's heyday of species development may be all but over. "A staggering number of species are found only on Madagascar," said Daniel Scantlebury, a Ph.D. student in biology, "but this research shows there are limits to the number of...
