Webinars by the Marine BON community

The webinars provide an opportunity for the MBON community members to share ideas, talk about methods and protocols, progress in specific programs or manuscripts, and address issues in developing a community of practice. We invite members of other groups, such as GEO Blue Planet, GEO Wetlands, the Freshwater BON, and any of the various GEO BON Working Groups and Task Forces, etc ., to participate, since we all share common problems and goals.

The webinars also provide a forum for seminars and lectures on issues of relevance to the research and applications of marine biodiversity.

13 The Multi-Agency Rocky Intertidal Network (MARINe) Program
At the core of the Multi-Agency Rocky Intertidal Network (MARINe) program is a simple and inexpensive, yet statistically sound approach to collecting long-term monitoring data. This approach has enabled the program to grow into a multi-organization consortium that monitors sites along the entire Pacific Coast of North America, from Alaska to Mexico. Key components to MARINe’s success will be highlighted, including: 1) collaboratively developed, standardized “core” protocols that can be layered with “supplemental” protocols to better capture regional differences, 2) a centralized database that ensures data accessibility and compatibility, 3) a website with data display capabilities that can be utilized by a broad range of users, including researchers, resource managers and the general public, and 4) a diverse funding model that can provide long-term sustainability.
