Thursday, 27 March 2014, Dr. Jorge Soberon of the University of Kansas kicked off the first ‘global lecture’ in biodiversity informatics and the first of what is intended to be a monthly webinar series on various topics in the field.
He presented a detailed lecture on approaches to analyzing and understanding biodiversity patterns. The lecture is designed to complement and extend the BITC Biodiversity Data Analysis course held in July 2013. It was recorded live from the University of Kansas and broadcasted on Google+ and YouTube. The lecture may be viewed below or you may follow the link HERE to transfer to the YouTube site.
