Are you looking for students interested in your taxonomic group? Or perhaps you're looking for someone to train you in taxonomy. Here we seek to create a network of experts and trainees so we can connect people interested in teaching with those seeking to learn taxonomy. "Training" can be many things, from providing feedback on a project, hosting visitors at your museum to look at specimens, working together on a field survey, to taking on graduate students.
If you are interested in adding your name to the network, please join the network and write "Taxonomy Training Network" in the comment section, indicating whether you are 1) an expert willing to train someone or are seeking training, 2) the taxonomic group of interest/expertise, and 3) your geographic interest/specialty (if applicable). Then we'll add you to the network!
In addition, this list of experts may be useful to you if you are organizing a survey and looking for an expert for a particular taxonomic group.
Conservation International makes no endorsement of these scientist's qualifications or their availability. The names are provided only to facilitate locating potential scientists that work in the field and/or region that will be surveyed.
