Swedish LifeWatch (SLW) is a collaborative partner of Biodiversity Atlas Sweden.
In and around the roots of the trees are fungi and bacteria living in symbiosis with the trees, exchanging nutrients for carbon. An effort to map the most common symbiosis types - based on data from more than 1.1 million specimens and 28,000 tree species - has revealed factors that determine where different types of mycorrhizae and nitrogen-fixing bacteria will thrive. The work can help researchers understand how symbiosis shapes the world's forests and how they can be affected by a warmer climate.
The Swedish Biodiversity Data Infrastructure (SBDI) has had its first National Coordination Group meeting, during which several new opportunities for collaboration were identified.
In May 2019, the University of Aarhus organized a workshop on 'Machine Learning for Biologists’, a three-day meeting designed to answer to the fast-growing demand for Machine Learning applications in Ecology and Biodiversity Informatics.
