Abstract

This paper presents a study about the use of metadata standards for the area of Biodiversity Informatics. Species Distribution Modeling tools generated models that offer information about species distribution and allow scientists, researchers, environmentalists, companies and govern to make decisions to protect and preserve biodiversity. Studies reveal that this area require new technologies and this include the interoperability between models generated by Species Distribution Tools. To ensure interoperability, we present a schema that use metadata standards to generate XML archives that contain all information necessary to reuse models of species distribution. This is part of a complex system that involves concepts of species distribution modeling, and computational concepts of interoperability. Therefore, the use of tools to assist the understanding of the process involved in these complex systems, supports this research in order to arrive at a more complete and satisfactory solution.
