Ecological Niche Modeling (ENM): Predicting the distribution of species in geographic space using computer algorithms

Ecosystem: An ecosystem is a community of living organisms (plants, animals and microbes) in conjunction with the nonliving components of their environment (things like air, water and mineral soil), interacting as a system. These components are regarded as linked together through nutrient cycles and energy flows. As ecosystems are defined by the network of interactions among organisms, and between organisms and their environment, they can come in any size but usually encompass specific, limited spaces (although some scientists say that the entire planet is an ecosystem).

EGI: European Grid Infrastructure

e-Laboratory: Computer environment supporting the research on biodiversity issues using large amounts of data from cross-disciplinary data and computational sources.

EML: Ecological Metadata Language

Endangered: Endangered species are species that are considered to be threatened with extinction.

ENM: Ecological Niche Modelling

Environmental sequencing:DNA sequencing of whole communities or ecosystems using high-throughput methods.

e-Science: Refers to computationally intensive science carried out in highly distributed environments, mostly involving huge datasets and using grid computing systems

ESDIN: European Spatial Data Infrastructure Network

ESFRI: European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructure

EUDAT: European Data Infrastucture

EuroGEOSS: A project proposal in the EU 7th framework addressing a European approach to developing sustained operational capacities for GEOSS.

Extinction: Occurs when the last member of a species dies. Extinction represents the loss of a unique lineage.

At the final review of the project by the EC, one of the reviewers said: “Incredible work done with a community that is not unified. Remarkable work. It opens for new development in a near future. Hope for success. Good project. Happy that you have been financed three plus years ago.”
