EDIT Campanula Portal

Together with the Botanical Garden and Botanical Museum Berlin-Dahlem we work on the Campanula Portal of the EDIT platform. Our task is the development of components enabling the support of sequence and alignment data in the portal.

In the long run, this portal aims at providing a convenient access to the knowledge about the large family Campanulaceae. In the short run, we are using Campanula s.l. (bell flower), which is one of the most specious flowering plant genera, in this portal as an exemplar (1) to display work in progress on the systematics of this genus, and (2) to investigate convenient ways to display the linking of metadata and descriptive data for collection items with taxonomic information.
