Summary of activities from 2018-20

The Expert Group on Antarctic Biodiversity Informatics was formed in 2012, with Bruno Danis as the chief officer and aiming to foster the application and development of biodiversity informatics in the SCAR community. In the subsequent 8 years, EGABI achieved a number of remarkable successes, contributing to such projects as the SCAR Biogeographic Atlas of the Southern Ocean, the Microbial Antarctic Resource System, and the Retrospective Analysis of Antarctic Tracking Data. Due to changes in work commitments, Bruno stepped down as chief officer in 2020, just prior to the end of the current EGABI term. Ben Raymond replaced Bruno as chief officer, with Anton Van de Putte as deputy.
