LSID Policy Workshop

By: Lee Belbin

A workshop to develop a policy on LSID deployment was sponsored by the TDWG Infrastructure Project. The workshop was hosted by Greg Whitbread at the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra April 2-4 2007.

The workshop was attended by 20 invited experts from Australia and New Zealand’s biodiversity federation, two from the TDWG Infrastructure Project and David Patterson from the Encyclopedia of Life project:

  • Bill Barker (State Herbarium of South Australia; Department of Environment and Heritage; Adelaide)
  • Lee Belbin (TDWG Infrastructure Project)
  • Alex Chapman (Western Australian Herbarium; Department of Environment and Conservation; Perth)
  • Paul Coddington (South Australian Partnership for Advanced Computing; The University of Adelaide; Adelaide)
  • Jim Croft (Australian National Herbarium; Centre for Plant Biodiversity Research; Canberra)
  • Paul Flemons (Australian Museum; Department of Communications, Information Technology and the Arts; Sydney)
  • Piers Higgs (Gaia Resources - representing Western Australian Museum; Department of Culture & the Arts; Perth)
  • Robyn Lawrence (Australian Biological Resources Study; Canberra)
  • Robert Morris (South Australian Museum; Adelaide)
  • Peter Neish (National Herbarium of Victoria; Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne; Melbourne)
  • Laurence Paine (Manager Information Technology; Department of Tourism, Arts and the Environment; Hobart)
  • David (Paddy) Patterson (Encyclopedia of Life)
  • Ricardo Pereira (TDWG Infrastructure Project; Campinas; Brazil)
  • Robert Raven (Queensland Museum; Department of Education, Training and the Arts)
  • Kevin Richards (Allan Herbarium; Manaaki Whenua - Landcare Research)
  • Ben Richardson (Western Australian Herbarium; Department of Environment and Conservation; Perth)
  • Dan Rosauer (Department of the Environment and Water Resources)
  • Steve Shattuck (Australian Biological Resources Study; Department of the Environment and Water Resources; Canberra)
  • Cameron Slatyer (Australian Biological Resources Study; Department of the Environment and Water Resources; Canberra)
  • Kevin Thiele (Western Australian Herbarium; Department of Environment and Conservation; Perth)
  • Jeff Tranter (Environmental Resources Information Network; Department of the Environment and Water Resources; Canberra)
  • Greg Whitbread (Australian National Herbarium; Centre for Plant Biodiversity Research; Canberra)
  • Aaron Wilton (Allan Herbarium; Manaaki Whenua - Landcare Research; Christchurch)

The workshop developed an understanding of Life Science Identifiers (LSIDs), and then developed strategies for the deployment of LSIDs in the context of Australia and New Zealand’s biodiversity network. The report from the workshop provides an excellent high-level introduction to LSIDs and outlines basic strategies that will assist anyone considering the deployment of LSIDs at a national or regional level.

Further information about the workshop and its outcomes can be obtained from Greg Whitbread (ghw(at)anbg.gov.au) or Lee Belbin (lee(at)tdwg.org). More information about LSIDs can be obtained from the GUID subgroup pages and Wiki.
