Progress to date in developing a repository of associations has been driven by a number of people other than the authors. We thank Mike Barbour, Christian Feld, Dave Feldman, Michael Griffith, Sue Nichols, Richard Norris, Ralph Ogden, Astrid Schmidt Kloiber, Kate Schofield, Mike Stewardson, Steve Wealands, Jeff White, Lester Yuan and European Union's WISER team. We also thank those who attended the symposium in Washington DC, contributing their ideas to the nascent collaboration. We thank Donat Agosti and Willi Egloff for feedback about Plazi efforts in the context of the proposed concept. We thank Dr. Isabella Bertani for general consultation on technological advancements surrounding data sharing and meta-analysis. This work benefited from EU 7th Framework Directive support, specifically the WISER project (contract number 226273) and the MARS project (contract number 603378).
