应对社会公众和国家相关行业和部门对植物物种认知的广泛需求,新一代植物志(iFlora)应运而生。为了服务于该研究计划,本文提出了iFlora科技领域云的建设构想,拟建设由云服务端(资源层、服务层)、植物志智能生成系统、客户端(应用层)和核心用户群组成的信息化协同工作环境和应用平台:即(1) 在云端搭建协同工作平台,用以整合植物DNA条形码标准数据库、植物多样性信息数据库、计算模型库等信息化资源;(2) 在虚拟化科研平台中嵌入智能生成系统,为终端用户生成和展示智能植物志;(3) 在客户端开发多平台移动应用程序,服务于终端用户和实际应用。该建设将遵循植物学发展的规律,在植物学与信息化融合的过程中,形成众多科学工作者能够共同参与的,可共享、无障碍、无缝链接的云工作环境。该环境将整合机器、网络和分类学家的认知能力,为公众认知植物世界提供智能的认知系统。

 In order to meet the broad requirements of the public and state departments to recognize and distinguish plant species, a plan for the nextgeneration Flora was proposed, which is internet, DNAsequence and informationtechnology based, i.e., iFlora. In this paper, we suggest and present a research framework of “ScientificCloud for iFlora”, which is a combination of ResourceCloud (Resource and Service layer), Intelligent Reorganization System, MobileClients (Application layer) and KeyUsers. (1) ResourceCloud: a collaborative working platform in the cloud site. This platform is used to integrate all relevant information resources, including DNA barcoding reference library, plant biodiversity information, and analysis models. (2) Intelligent Reorganization System of Virtualization: a system to retrieve, reorganize and present iFlorarecords of a given plant species automatically and intelligently. (3) MobileClients: software applications of mainstream mobile platforms, such as iOS, android and Windows phone. Constructed by these three parts, the framework will not only service for the key users with cooperating platform but also providing web service for the general public.
The construction of this project will gradually combine botany and informatics. We are aiming to construct a sharing, easily accessible, and seamless connected ScientificCloud, with which numerous scientists cooperate together for iFlora. In addition, the ScientificCloud will integrate cognitive abilities of the machine, network, and taxonomists. It will provide an intelligent public service to perceive the plant world in a new dimension.
