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.
