[Taxacom] Citizen Science

Can I point you in the direction of Antweb.org who now have images of ant
type specimens. Although an enormously useful resource to someone, like
myself, seeking to verify what, without visiting museums or borrowing the
type specimens (not really desirable for fragile dry mounted insects), were
often "best guess" identifications of fresh material, the limitation is that
the excellent quality Antweb images (photographs) not infrequently do not
show diagnostic characters.  On the other hand I have found it possible to
identify species from field photographs sent to me. The moral objections to
taking specimens perhaps are misguided as, certainly if one is trying to
make sound ecological conclusions, or similar, one does, in my view, need to
know exactly what species one is studying.  I write this from in-depth
experience of such research.  Cytotaxonomy studies in recent years have
verified the existence of cryptic sibling species of Anopheles which I felt
lay behind an apparent resurgence of malaria transmission in the Solomon
Islands some 40 years ago. My conclusions had come from monitoring the time
of man-biting before and after house-spraying operations had commenced.

In my ant taxonomy studies, I take a series, usually about 20, of simple
photographs from different angles and at different levels of magnification.
I compile a "photomontage" to illustrate the species and maintain a digital
museum of most of the specimens, or representatives from samples of more
than one ant. The actual mounted specimens will all go into museum
collections but, hopefully, not have to be loaned out and, so, risk damage
or loss.
