Biodiversity literature and data constitute a vast public resource open to mining and knowledge extraction. Associating organisms to key features of their life, for example the environment in which they live, the way feed, their breeding habits, is cornerstone in explaining biodiversity patterns and informing ecological decisions. The Literature Mining virtual Lab (LM-vLab) aims at the automatic extraction of species - traits associations from the literature.
