As the ecology community expands, it is now adopting new ways of making sense of the plethora of data produced from diverse approaches, including ocean research, eco-genomics, limnology, and macrosystems ecology, through more integrative means – improving our understanding of biology in a broader sense. This also presents new challenges, including data hosting and sharing to improve collaborations between multiple disciplines within ecology, and to improve reproducibility and data reuse. GigaScience is proud to present this comprehensive and forward-looking series, which will highlight new advances, applications, and challenges, and serve to promote and improve data sharing and reproducibility in ecology science.
