on Evolution and Biodiversity
GEO-X Plenary + Geneva Ministerial Summit 2014
Global challenges
• Biodiversity loss,
• Climate change,
• Water & Food scarcity,
• Poverty.
The Knowledge Society is
based on science and
technology, i.e., the
availability of sound &
reliable scientific data,
analysis and tools

Two realms: field (in situ) + remote sensing data
+ Data Standards, Interoperability,
+ Common Monitoring Schemes,
+ Analysis Tools, Patterns and Trends, Indicators,
+ Science Policy Interface(s), Dissemination

EU BON characteristics
Key feature of EU BON:
Delivery of integrated, near-real-time relevant data – both from onground observation and remote sensing – to the various
stakeholders and end users ranging from local to global levels.
The main objective of EU BON:
Build a substantial part of the Group on Earth Observation’s
Biodiversity Observation Network (GEO BON), also in light of the
new Intergovernmental science-policy Platform on Biodiversity and
Ecosystem Services (IPBES).

GEO-X Plenary + Geneva Ministerial Summit 2014
EU BON –Data Integration (WP2)
EU BON will be implementing the GEO BON vision:
• automated, streamlined data flow, from observations via EBVs, to indicators,
• using a plug-and-play service-oriented approach,
• coordinated through the GEO BON registry system
• linked to the GEOSS Common Infrastructure, and transparent to users
through portals

•
User authentication and authorization
Upload data: datasets & related metadata, different formats (DwC, EML, ABCD).
Edit data and metadata (only allowed users).
Search biodiversity occurrence (returning data from any connected data provider)
Visualize data and metadata:
• Grids, forms and maps.
• Charts, statistics and reports.
• Export and download:
• Obtain statistics and EBV’s estimation from related data.

Improving tools and methods for data analysis and interface
(WP3 )
EU BON achievements for data analyis:
• For advanced tools for interpreting satellite or aerial imagery:
Assessment of available remote-sensing approaches.
• Methods for analyzing datasets:
• survey of existing spatial niche modeling approaches,
• focus on a novel hierarchical classification algorithm for habitat
classification,
• species population downscaling approaches developed,
• developing up-scaling approaches e.g. for plant - red lists,
3-dimentional “manifold” techniques,
• enhanced version of Aquamaps software
GEO-X Plenary + Geneva Ministerial Summit 2014
Science-policy dialogue (WP 6)
EU BON – Using biodiversity data for policy:
• Biodiversity data is often collected to support policy development,
reporting and monitoring purposes at all levels
• A large number of policies have reporting requirements
• In addition, there are many processes which are biodiversity data
hungry
• Data and information is used both directly and indirectly
• Being aware of the policy landscape will help:
• Making the most out of existing data. The same data can be
used to report to various policies and inform various processes.
• Identify existing gaps. This will help to prioritize areas for further
work and allocation of resources

What can EBVs deliver?
EU 2020 Target 1 Fully implement the Birds and
Habitats Directives:
To halt the deterioration in the status of all
species and habitats covered by EU nature
legislation and achieve a significant and
measurable improvement in their status so that,
by 2020, compared to current assessments.
Relevant EBVs
• Genetic composition (co-ancestry, allelic
diversity, population genetic differentiation),
• Species population (Species distribution and
Population abundance),
• Species traits (Migratory behaviour)
• Community composition (Taxonomic diversity)
and
• Ecosystem structure (Habitat structure and
ecosystem extent and fragmentation)
Data availability for
• all biomes: terrestrial,
fresh water and marine
• geographical coverage
• specific taxa
• common versus rare
species
• Time series
Existing knowledge and data gaps
