ESA Requests Help: ESA (Ecological Society of America),

The Ecological Society of America has set up a data registry system http://www.esa.org/mdc in which anyone with information about ecological or environmental conditions along the Gulf of Mexico’s coastal ecosystems (LA, TX, MS, AL and FL) and other potential sites that might be affected in the future can upload metadata and help build a database documenting ecological states and conditions before the spill.

This database will be searchable by place and time, taxa or physico-chemical variables monitored, ecosystem type, etc. Those scientists contributing their metadata and their contact information will agree to share their information with scientists and managers on the front line of assessment, mitigation, or restoration efforts.  ESA graduate student leaders Jorge Ramos and Rob Salguero-Gomez will follow up with the contact person for more information, if needed.

 Please help us by submitting your information and notifying colleagues about this effort.
