Reichman, Jones, and Schildhauer write about the technological and sociological challenges and opportunities of an open data model for ecology in Science (http://dx.doi.org/10.1126/science.1197962). The authors discuss the technological approaches to issues of data dispersion, heterogeneity, and provenance in ecology, and show how a federated data system like DataONE can play a pivotal role in open, reproducible science.
