Biomimicry and the Built Environment

submitted by: Mearon

Biomimicry is a new science that links nature's best designs into human applications. It can be used to solve many problems which humans face in the fields of medicine, transportation, architecture and construction, energy, product design, computer science and network systems management. The science of biomimicry is a newly developing field but the application of biomimicry has been around since the beginning of man.

Importing an EML document into the Morpho editor

submitted by: LTER_NetworkOffice_is

the Morpho ecological metadata editor does not recognize EML documents that are not created using Morpho. Here is a trick to make Morpho recognize EML documents that are created or edited outside Morpho: You need to place the document under the folder where Morpho keeps locally its EML documents, and you need to name your EML using a filename composed of two integers sepated by a dot

Converting List of Taxa from ITIS to the Ecological Metadata Language

submitted by: LTER_NetworkOffice_is
Given a list of taxa names, create an Ecological Metadata Language (EML) compliant taxonomic classification that can be embedded in an EML metadata record. We use ITIS to create an SGML- fgdc/bdp compliant fragment, which can be converted directly into an EML fragment. To do so, you can replace the BDP tags by the EML counterparts, using any editor with a Find&Replace function, or using the Perl script provided as attached materials. These are the string replacements needed BDP...

Urgency For Inter-City Railway System In Southern California
