Data archiving and tropical biology

In a recent published editorial in Biotropica, Emilio Bruna makes the case for data archiving in tropical biology.

In his words, “… tropical ecosystems are undergoing myriad, rapid, and unprecedented environmental changes. The data collected by Biotropica’s authors could provide an invaluable resource to the scientists and decision-makers studying global change phenomena and designing conservation and management strategies.”
