The FRB in action
Open Science at CESAB

Share tools and databases

By encouraging the groups hosted to allow everyone to access to the tools and databases developed as part of their work, CESAB is supporting open science since its creation in 2010.

 

Indeed, the researchers of the working groups hosted at the FRBs CESAB create and work on numerous databases on biodiversity. In order to efficiently analyse these data, the Centre’s team and some groups also develop complex statistical tools.

A general approach to Species-Abundance relationships in a context of global change, reef fish species as a model

 

  • Database of presence/absence of more than 6,300 coral reef species in more than 100 worldwide locations. Available on request (contact : Valeriano Parravicini).

RAATD
Retrospective analysis of vertebrates’ tracking data in Antarctica to identify ecologically significant areas

 

  • The RAATD project consolidated tracking data for multiple species of Antarctic meso- and top-predators to identify Areas of Ecological Significance. These datasets constitute the compiled tracking data from a large number of research groups that have worked in the Antarctic since the 1990s.

RAINBIO
African biodiversity dynamics: interactions between ecological processes and conservation actions

 

  • The RAINBIO mega database contains high quality georeferenced occurrences of vascular plants from sub-Saharan tropical Africa. It is a compilation of thirteen public and non-public databases made available under the RAINBIO project funded by CESAB. The database was filtered, quality-checked and verified by the CESAB RAINBIO Consortium. The database holds 610 117 georeferenced occurrences for 25,356 species of vascular plants and 29,659 taxa (including subspecies and varieties), 3,158 genera and 273 families.
