Workflows

The Internal Joint Initiative (IJI) was instigated by LifeWatch ERIC in 2019 to build the next generation of Virtual Research Environments (VREs). Informaticians at the ICT-Core in Spain and the Service Centre in Italy worked extensively with scientists from biodiversity & ecosystem communities across Europe to develop new platforms and tools that those researchers required to take their investigations to the next level.

This page gives an overview of the five validation cases on Non-indigenous & Invasive Species (NIS) and allows to access the corresponding workflows.

Ailanthus
altissima

This is the heading

It focuses on providing and integrating modelling and remote sensing techniques to monitor and control the spread of the invasive species Ailanthus altissima.

ARMS

This is the heading

It is a data chaining pipeline that uses both community composition and community metabarcoding data produced by a network of Autonomous Reef Monitoring Structures (ARMS).

Biotope

This is the heading

It aims at highlighting where the incidence of invasive alien species is the strongest and which areas (or habitats) are the most vulnerable to the negative impacts of invasive alien species.

Crustaceans

This is the heading

It operates as an analysis pipeline for isotopic data aiming at protecting the distribution of an invasive crustacean species.

Metabarcoding

This is the heading

It aims at developing an analytical pipeline to detect NIS in freshwater samples using metabarcoding techniques.
