Key words：Key words: LTER, raw data, metadata, linked data cloud, network.
The purpose of this paper is to report and discuss the use of a linked data approach on existing
related databases on forest fires, plant specimens, insect collections, forest dynamics plot censuses,
and Taiwanese species checklists. We adopted the linked data approach to connect together data in¬
trinsically related from distributed databases. The approach developed a workflow through 4 steps
to integrate and publish human- and machine-readable ecological data as linked open data on the web. Results from our work can be found at the web site http://ecowlim.tfri.gov.tw. We conclude that the linked data approach is a new way to improve and advance ecological data sharing.
