The "Ecoinformatics Portal" was developed by Jürgen Dengler from the Plant Ecology Group to provide access to various research activities within BayCEER in the field of ecoinformatics. When he moved to the Zurich University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland in 2017, the website was partly kept up-to-date until 2019. It is no longer maintained since 2020. Major parts of the information, particularly on the GrassPlot and regional vegetation-plot databases, has moved to the "Databases" section of the EDGG website.

Jürgen Dengler has been one of the key players in advancing the establishment and use of such databases during the past 1.5 decades, nationally and internationally.
