SUSTAINING THE WORLD THROUGH SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Inventory Projects


Synopses of current and past projects providing inventory and specimen-level data

 

1. Tri-Trophic Thematic Collection Network

This is a temporary location of Auchenorrhyncha data summaries from the Tri-Trophic Hemiptera collection Network specimen database.  This will be moved to its own page once some technical issues (regarding the mechanics of updating this data) have been sorted out.

Numbers of specimen records as of May, 2013.  Number of specimens only those captured in the "Arthropod Easy Capture" database, and does not include those captured in Specify or in Dmitry Dmitriev's "3I Interactive Keys and Taxonomic Databases".

2. Planthoppers of Costa Rica (and adjacent countries)

This is a listing of planthoppers of Costa Rica assembled by UD undergraduates Kaitlin Handley and Sara Laskowski (both of which have since graduated). I have made a few additions (and name corrections), including some taxa identified to genus only (or are new species).

4. Auchenorrhyncha of the George Washington Memorial Parkway (GWMP).

 

The GWMP is in northern Virginia just south of the Washington DC Metropolitan area.

An annotated list of Auchenorrhyncha from the park will be posted here (at present it is a skeletal list).
