Welcome to PROPE-Taxon

PROPE-taxon (Web Accessible Taxonomic Expertise in MARBEF: PROviding an e-Platform for the European Taxonomists) is a Responsive Mode Project undertaken within the MarBEF EU Network of Excellence, funded under the Sixth Framework Programme of the European Union. It aims at providing European taxonomists with a community driven e-platform that acts as a web-accessible depository for integrated taxonomic knowledge systems (databases, keys, biogeographic data) based upon existing software and technologies and to use this mechanism to open up relevant taxonomic expertise to the MARBEF community and to establish interaction with the European taxonomists and the corresponding Network of the Natural History Museums for needed (missing) expertise.
