List of contacts of taxonomic experts maintained by ETI in support of their World Biodiversity database more
Ever been looking for a colleague's address for a quick reference on his/her latest publication? Or wanted to send an announcement to a group of specialists to inform them about a special workshop or symposium? In many cases you will find your way, but sometimes it is hard to trace a fellow taxonomist. For users of taxonomic expertise it is nearly impossible to find a specialist. According to our most recent estimates, there are presently only about 5000 experienced taxonomists in the world. Wouldn't it be nice to have a central point on the Internet where you could find the basic information about your colleagues? To find out, for instance, what specialists work on portunid crabs, or who is focusing their biogeographic work on Malaysia? Some ETI Partners suggested that ETI should facilitate contact with other taxonomists. Others told us that for users of taxonomic expertise it is nearly impossible to find a specialist and that a continuously updated online directory was badly needed. With the World Taxonomist Database, ETI offers you an online taxonomists directory service.
