Dear Colleagues,

Below please find a call issued by the Taxonomic Databases Working Group
(TDWG) Infrastructures Project (see, which has the aim to
turn TDWG into a professional standardisation body for our community. I'd
highly appreciate if you could take the time to answer the survey, and/or
hand this on to others, because this may be rather important for the
direction that TDWG will take.

With all the best for 2006

Walter Berendsohn (Chair)

Experiences from and after St Petersburg suggests that a survey of TDWG

you and anyone that you believe are 'informed about TDWG' in the broader
community taking ~12 minutes to answer the 12 questions.

The survey can be found at-

and will close on February 3 2006.
