Welcome to the LTSS/ESA Data Registry. This is a publically accessible registry
48
describing <b>scientific data sets on ecology and the environment</b>.  In this
49
context, we refer to a data set as the collection of data tables and objects
50
that are associated with a study, experiment, or monitoring program.  Exactly
51
what constitutes a data set is determined by each submitter.
52
Credit for the datasets in this registry goes to the investigators who
53
collected the data -- see each individual registry entry for citation and
54
attribution information as well as usage rights.

      The registry search system is used to locate data sets of interest
87
      by searching through existing registered data sets.  
88
      Presently the search covers all fields, including
89
      author, title, abstract, keywords, and other documentation
90
      for each dataset.  Use a '%' symbol as a wildcard in searches
91
      (e.g., '%biodiversity%' would locate any phrase with the word
92
      biodiversity embedded within it).

      The registration page is used to submit information about a <b>new</b>
106
      data set regarding ecology or the environment.  The documentation about 
107
      the data set will be submitted to the Registry.  You (and only
108
      you, or your designee) can return to edit the entry
109
      at a later point in time to add to or correct the
110
      description.  You can also use other tools such as <a
111
      href="http://knb.ecoinformatics.org/morphoportal.jsp">Morpho</a> to
112
      further document the set of data and directly attach the data to the
113
      registry entry.
