ready Structured Descriptive Data

Abbreviation: SDD


General Information
In taxonomy, descriptive data takes a number of very different forms. The goal of the Structured Descriptive Data (SDD) standard is to allow capture, transport, caching and archiving of descriptive data in all of its varied forms, using a platform- and application-independent, international standard. Such a standard is crucial to enabling lossless porting of data between existing and future software platforms including identification, data-mining and analysis tools, and federated databases.

Implementing Databases (2)
Lichenized and Non-Lichenized Ascomycetes
LIAS is a global information system for Lichenized and Non-Lichenized Ascomycetes. It includes several interoperable data repositories. In recent years, the two core components ‘LIAS names’ and ‘LIAS light’ have been enlarged. LIAS light stores phenotypic trait data. The component ‘LIAS names’ is a platform for managing taxonomic names and classifications. 'LIAS names' and ‘LIAS light’ also deliver content data to the Catalogue of Life, acting as the Global Species Database (GSD) for lichens. LIAS gtm is a database for visualising the geographic distribution of lichen traits. LIAS is powered by the Diversity Workbench database framework with several interfaces for data management and publication.

Determination of Ectomycorrhizae
DEEMY collects descriptive data on ectomycorrhizae, including extant character descriptions and definitions. Ectomycorrhizae are mutualistic structures formed by fungi and the roots of forest trees. They are predominantly found in the temperate and boreal climate zones but occur also in humid tropic regions, as well as in soils of poor nutrition. Without mycorrhizae, trees would not be able to take up water and minerals. Ectomycorrhizae show a wide range of anatomical diversity which represents their possible function in tree nutrition and ecology. Their anatomical data, in general, allow a quick determination and provide at the same time ecologically important information about possible functions for tree nutrition.
