May 3, Species360 Director of Science Dr. Dalia Conde will lead a discussion on the power of aquarium and zoo data for scientific discovery. The course is part of a workshop on the role of zoos in advancing conservation and biological sciences, with for researchers from zoos, museums, and academic institutions.
Species360 Director of Science and Conservation Science Alliance lead Dr. Dalia Conde speaks with ScienceNode writer August Reed about her path to using high performance computing in ecology research.
Following a talk at the SC20 High Performance Computing Conference, Species360 Director of Science Dalia Conde talks with ScienceNode magazine about how data can help us better understand species survival
Aquarium L’Oceanogràfic (Valencia, Spain) uses ZIMS to measure its role in sustaining key species, including 28 coral species assessed as vulnerable to climate change.
"The phylogenetic and taxonomic diversity, the numerical scale, the multi-decadal and (often) multi-generational record-keeping, and the biological, behavioral, epidemiological and biomedical details contained (in ZIMS) are bursting with demographic possibilities."
EAZA's Silent Forest Group partners with Species360 Conservation Science Alliance to create a new way of looking at the world of songbirds -- one they hope will further enhance efforts to save them. The Songbird Species Knowledge Index applies analytics to global data, including vast demographic information curated by Species360 member zoos and aquariums using ZIMS.
At PASC21, Director of Science Dalia Conde addressed the opportunity to use big data and exascale computing to help answer critical questions and inform strategies to protect biodiversity. She presented the global Species Knowledge Index and other initiatives aiming to map, quantify and disseminate species open information to conservation policymakers globally.
