The draft Strategic Plan includes the following as one of the strategies for developing the community:
Develop partnerships with ecological and environmental monitoring networks
Develop and adopt protocols that integrate efficiently with broader efforts to survey and monitor ecosystems.
Engagement with monitoring networks will increase the reach of BIOSCAN to record biodiversity from more regions, ecosystems and time periods and will offer opportunities to improve sampling strategies in light of established best practices.
What should be done to build linkages between BIOSCAN and major ecological and environmental monitoring networks?
What networks are best positioned to work with BIOSCAN?
