NSF Workshop Final Report
Report to the U. S. National Science Foundation on a "Workshop to Produce a Decadal Vision for Taxonomy and Natural History Collections."
LINNE will be a virtual taxonomic research tool linking biological collections, research facilities, experts and instruments for efficient species discovery, description, and classification. LINNE will make information on biological diversity easily accessible and transform the science of taxonomy. LINNE will become a vital resource for researchers, educators, and decision-makers who depend on knowledge of the world's species.
