Photo bank for: WCSdb: A database of Wild Coffea Species

Romain Guyot, Perla Hamon, Emmanuel Couturon, Nathalie Raharimalala & Jean-Jacques Rakotomalala
Coffee is a beverage enjoyed by millions of people worldwide and an important commodity for millions of people. Beside the two cultivated species (Coffea arabica and Coffea canephora), the 139 wild coffee species belong to the Coffea genus are largely unknown to coffee scientists and breeders although these species may be crucial for future coffee crop development to face climate changes. Here we present the Wild Coffee Species database hosted by PlantNet platform (http://publish.plantnet-project.org/project/wildcofdb_en), providing...

Instantiation example of the user centric metadata model - REPHY network

Valentina BERETTA
This example of the proposed use centric metadata model is constructed using the data of Observation and Monitoring Network for Phytoplankton and Hydrology in coastal waters. The dataset [Cellule d'Administration Quadrige², 2017] contains several files of distinct parameters measured between 2006 and 2016 at the French surveillance sites (called REPHY network). However, to give the proof-of-concept illustration of the proposed model, only observations related to the concentration measurements of Pheopigment (i.e. a pigment which is...
