Lepidoptera of Romania
This is a group project open for anybody ranging from professional or enthusiastic specialists to any person that just happen to have some butterfly or moth observations, but does not have any other special interest in the Lepidoptera. Open the project details, click on the tab called "Project members" and join (if you are inside myBiOSis environment).
The aims of this project are:
- illustrate each species of Lepidoptera from Romanian Fauna in visualKeys, and build species pages where information is available.
- gather distribution data for any lepidopteran species in Romania and build maps.
- index all literature that document occurrences of Lepidoptera in Romania.
- index species citations in scientific literature and georeference occurence records from published records.
- digitize personal or museum collections.
- assemble a checklist for Romania (this is an inevitable by-product of points above).
- make more people aware of these very interesting and usually splendid looking animals (this is an inevitable by-product of points above).
We think this project has already a solid basis with over 600 species illustrated and tens of thousands of distribution points (Dec 2012). With all the tools in place for achieving all these tasks, we only wait now for you to join and enjoy your discoveries together with us. Why you should waste your precious observations on ephemerous blogs, forums, Facebook albums or timelines...put the data at work for you and community.
If you are from another country, and would like to build something similar, just create another project. You could benefit from data already gathered...as a starter. visualKeys are global in geographic scope, so species shared by several countries are treated once...it is not necessary to write twice the same species page!!! For the rest, take advantage of the whole infrastructure and build your own country dataset, build your own page in blogosphere with your colors logo and details...and voila, you have a project running in no time.
For functions and modules that may be appropriate for Lepidoptera species pages just drop an email or message in forum. We can build and integrate these modules sometimes in very short time. Just give it a try!
