The Ecotaxonomy database is a platform developed to integrate ecological research
with taxonomy and, more in general, with morphology of organisms.
From one side, the Ecotaxonomy is a repository for identification characters and
ecological traits of species and morphospecies. From another side, the Ecotaxonomy
is a tool for data management in ecological projects. As a publicly available output,
we provide a pictorial catalogue and easy in use identification keys for some taxa.
At the initiation moment, the Ecotaxonomy is connecting ecological and taxonomical
work within the interdisciplinary research project EFForTS in Indonesia http://www.uni-goettingen.de/en/310995.html
with focus on soil and arboreal arthropods.
In the future, the database will be able to cover a wide range of
organisms and regions. Next steps are our projects in Europe and Ecuador.
