Workshop DecaNet: a Global Species Database for Decapoda

The DecaNet workshop is a 4 day workshop (10-13 May) that takes place in VLIZ, Ostend and is organized by LifeWatch VLIZ (WoRMS-team). The goal of the workshop is to work towards establishing a Global Species List of Decapoda, which not only will incorporate all the basic taxonomic information, but will also host all the literature records (incl. an extensive pdf library), document the distributions of the species, as well as list their ecological (depth, habitat, etc.) attributes in a uniform and hierarchical way.

The aims are directly linked with the above information:

  • Target completion of legacy issues
  • Design DecaNet 
  • Start species distributions and traits framework
  • Organise foundation publications
