Hola Pakko! You have a very nice collection of bugs and most of them with an ID. Please, only add the scientific name in the corresponding field with no addition of the author, so instead of Pompeius pompeius ( Latreille, 1824 ), only Pompeius pompeius. You certainly can and I invite you to do so, add additional info, like the full name and taxonomic tree and the author in the description section. Thanks for understanding!
Thanks so much for your input and corrections! I just saw them now. It is really going to be challenging to get the locations of these spottings correct after so many years, but I will appreciate your help!
For the developers at New York start-up Networked Organisms, smartphones are the butterfly nets of the 21st Century. Their tool, Project Noah, lets people upload photos of plants and wildlife around them, creating a map of the natural world and contributing to scientific research in the process.
Bespectacled scientists of yore would carry around hefty field guides, made up of hundreds of pages of text and photos. But these days, smartphone owners have a lighter option: an app called Project Noah, which aims to help people identify plants and animals as well as collect data from "citizen scientists" about where certain species are located.
Project Noah enables us to be part of a more focused online community where we can learn more about wildlife around us and contribute to scientific research. It pulls participants into deeper, more meaningful engagement by enabling people to go on “missions” to collectively map changes based on sightings.
A modern invention that may also hold the key to saving species in the future. Project Noah is a global study that encourages nature lovers to document the wildlife they encounter, using a purpose built phone app and web community. In addition to the virtual "collection" of species, Project Noah encourages citizen science by linking up with existing surveys including the International Spider Survey and the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network.
