 Dear colleagues,

The GBIF <http://www.gbif.org/> task group on data fitness for use in
research on invasive alien species (IAS) is seeking survey responses from
data users and data holders intended to help improve both the suitability
and the access to data for use in invasion biology and related fields.

Through the 21-question survey <https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SD7TFBF>,
which should take 15-20 minutes to complete, the task group aims
to document limitations in existing GBIF services, improve the utility of
GBIF-mediated data and get suggestions on functional improvements needed to
support better IAS-related research.

*Take the survey now >> <http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SD7TFBF>*

The survey is open for responses until *30 September 2016*, though feedback
is welcome at any point. Direct your questions or comments about the survey
to Dmitry Schigel
