ready Neotoma Paleoecological Database


General Information
The mission of the Neotoma Paleoecology Database is to provide a high-quality, community-curated, and sustainable public repository for paleoecological data, spanning the last 2.5 million years, including fossil pollen, mammal, diatom, ostracode, and geochemical data. Neotoma facilitates multi-scale, multi-disciplinary research and education. It is available for use by other data cooperatives that are welcome to develop their own individualized frontends to the database, as well as remotely input and update data. The Neotoma Paleoecology Database is an international coalition of constituent databases, and provides a common data model and user-oriented services for these constituent databases. Neotoma data are public and made freely available to all.
