Parr, C., Cummings, M. (March 2005)
Data Sharing in Ecology and Evolution: Why Not?
Trends in Ecology and Evolution, July 2005.
HCIL-2005-06, CS-TR-4708, UMIACS-TR-2005-16

The rapid advancement of fields such as molecular biology, genomics and molecular evolution is due, in large part, to pervasive data sharing. We review the state of data sharing in ecology, evolution, conservation biology, animal behavior and related fields and argue that further data sharing could transform them. We highlight community and personal benefits of and responsibility for sharing data. Emerging technology is overcoming logistical barriers to sharing and using shared data. Ecology and evolution should be part of the larger synthetic, multidisciplinary movement and the willingness of individual researchers to share data will be key.
