Key words：metadata, EML, data Management, LTER
This study adopted the content management system, Drupal Ecological Information
Management System, to develop a database and a website to host 16 forest dynamics
plots of Taiwan. These plots established since 1990 are from 1 to 25 ha in size. We edited
the detailed metadata of the 16 plots based on Ecological Metadata Language to link all
related information including the dataset, project, researcher, publications, and plot profile.
The linked information is presented in a webpage format. Users can easily browse the
information through designed pages such as 116 publications which have been collected
with bibliographical pages. In order to use the dataset of plots, we also created a search
interface for users to query data with survey tags or species names. The results showed
that the Drupal Ecological Information Management System is a potential tool for forest
dynamics plots data management.
