摘要: 生物多样性科学和生物信息学是生命科学中两个极为重要也是十分活跃的交叉学科,生物多样性信息学则是目前正在兴起的一个新方向,其发展必将进一步深化信息技术在生物多样性研究中的应用。本文简要介绍了国内外该领域的主要目标与进展,讨论了有关的关键技术(如数据库间的互操作与数字图书馆),并列出了两个原型系统(Species 2000和GBIF)和其他相关系统的网址。

Abstract: Biodiversity science and bioinformatics are two of the most important and active fields in today’s life sciences. Currently , biodiversity informatics , a new interacting direction of the two fields , has risen. Its de2 velopment will deepen the application of information technology in biodiversity studies. This paper introduces the major objectives and advances of biodiversity informatics as well as related key techniques , such as database interoperability and digital library. In addition , two prototype systems , i. e. , Species 2000 and GBIF are also introduced briefly and the URLs of other related systems are listed.
