Developing a network of research institutes and collaborators interested in time-series biodiversity data

Mark Costello (University of Auckland) and Amanda Bates are working on the initial steps in developing a global network of research institutes and collaborators interested in time-series biodiversity data. We are hoping that you would be willing to provide some information on long-term monitoring programmes/data series/observatories that are based at your institute.  Our aim is to identify temporal marine data sets and data holders in Europe, starting with the EUROMARINE community.
