The northern Adriatic is the northernmost, shallow and enclosed part of the Adriatic (Mediterranean).It is characterized by complicated set of steep ecological gradients thus providing a large variety of ecological conditions. Due to its characteristics the northern Adriatic is a natural experimental basin for marine research under different perspectives (from climate change to the ecology of evolution). However, access to and detailed information about its biodiversity is still not organized at a desirable level. In a cooperation between the BGBM Berlin (Germany) and the CIM Rovinj (Croatia) we undertake first steps to institutionalize the access to data about the planktonic biodiversity as well as to the respective biodiversity resources. Efforts include the connection of local databases to the Global Biodiversity Information Infrastructure (GBIF), the connection of the phytoplankton cell culture at the CIM as well as the DNA-sample collection at the CIM to the DNA Bank Network. A formal investigation of the so far collected information about the northern Adriatics planktonic biodiversity aims at a taxonomically and systematically correct set of data. Tests of barcoding markers prepare for biodiversity analyses with next generation methods. This bilateral cooperation is supported by the German academic exchange service (DAAD) and the Croatian ministry for science, education and sports.
