Default Icon2007 Data Access and Synthesis: ESA working group

The goal of this working group is to create a framework that will increase accessibility to scientific information, data, and research results to land managers, scientists, and the public, specifically in the area of ecology and conservation biology.

An organized session convened at the 2007 Ecological Society of America meeting which focused on current cyberinfrastructure tools that allow managers to find relevant scientific research, management plans, and collaboration tools that enable more effective conservation and restoration decisions. The session participants included people who represent conservation organizations, technology developers, and groups supported by and working for federal and state government, private business, non-profit, and the scientific community. Included were both those groups developing technology and organizations which build on such initiatives to make data more accessible and synthesize research results into a single body of evidence on a particular management or policy issue.

Building from the session at ESA, this multi-disciplinary/institutional group has formed a working group to explore these issues in more depth, coordinate with other efforts with similar goals, and ultimately to develop broader strategies. We welcome your participation and input. To join the working group, contact Mikaila Milton ( or Tosha Comendant (
