Abstract

A general concept for creation of a problem-oriented Web portal on alien species invasions in the Russian Federation (http://www.sevin.ru/invasive) is described. The portal contains the information model for representing taxa that fits in its metadata structure the metadata structure of the continental, regional, and various national public centers of North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia. Functional tasks, organizational and functional structure of the Web portal, and conceptual framework of the integrated database (DB) for various taxa are considered by the example of plant and insect quarantine species. It is shown that the generalized DB structures of the portals of the Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the international public centers on various organisms (fish, mammals, birds, insects, plants, etc.) can be represented as three blocks—taxonomic, geographic, and bibliographic. A verbal description of the functional capabilities of the Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution web portal is given.
