The top-level BIS-Fogo web space is based on DokuWiki.
Wikis are collaborative web services which allow the creation and modification of content also for the computer science laity. Please study the information carefully to ensure a well structured and consistent web space.
The public domain of BIS-Fogo encompasses (i) the biodiversity information system component and (ii) the education component. In addition, a special data section, some general information and the internal information and staging domain complement the web space.
The individual pages are organized and grouped by namespaces. You can think of namespaces as a hierarchical structure similar to the folder structure on your computer.
