BioVeL provides workflows for the processing of data in major areas of biodiversity research: ecological niche modelling, ecosystem functioning, and taxonomy.
We offer several families of workflows:
- Data Refinement
- Ecological Niche Modelling
- Ecosystem Modelling
- Population Modelling
AND POLICY MAKERS
You need scientific results from data to understand complex biodiversity issues in order to make the right decisions. BioVeL provides you with easy tools to help you process data toward decision making. Our network of scientists and engineers will also support you in using our tools.
Here are examples of case studies using BioVeL products toward decision making.

News & Updates
We are pleased to announce the publication of the
Directory of BioVeL tools for biodiversity and ecosystems research
This document lists all the products that have been developed by BioVeL until 2014. It is organized in two large sections, one about workflows and one about Web services and workflows development. For each product, there is a summary description, together with information about what the product is for, who it is aimed at, how it works and what the typical outputs are. Simple examples of typical uses are also given, together with pointers to more detailed information. Finally, an indication of the responsible project partners (development, support) is given, together with an indication (starred ‘*’) of significant contributions to the product from other organisations. In general, we have given a brief reference to the scientific basis on which each product/tool is based but further explanations and references are available in the detailed documentation.

2,500 forest scientists have gathered to Salt Lake City for their congress which takes place every four years. BioVeL organises a side event where it will show and demonstrate its work on solving problems in forest science. Four presentations will be given, covering the main ideas of using workflows and Web services in a virtual e-laboratory; ecological niche modelling of the change of distribution and damage risk by the most important forest insect pests in Europe; carbon modelling with Biome-BGC model to quantify and derive important ecosystem service indicator measures; and open access to biodiversity and ecosystem data through the Global Biodiversity Information Facility.
