Gaat wel over USA trouwens maar ook....Biodiversidad Virtual !!!,507308.0.html e increasing volume of insect photo observations  an no longer be ignored, and entomologists are finding ways to use it. A review in Annals of the Entomological Society of America digs into best practices for bolstering entomological research with this growing body of citizen-science data. Among various findings, the researchers note an over-representation among online photo sharing of butterflies and moths (order Lepidoptera) and of arthropods from the Northern Hemisphere, particularly North America—such as this image of a viceroy butterfly (Limenitis archippus) taken in Benton County, Washington, USA.

Skvarla, an assistant research professor of arthropod identification at Penn State University, and Fisher, a research associate at Mississippi State University and the Mississippi Entomological Museum, reviewed 2,123 entomology-based publications that used community photographs and metadata from 77 online photo-sharing portals, including community science apps, social media, and media-sharing sites.

Overigens staat OIF netjes op nr 3 achter BugGuide (Shout out naar de persoon die vond dat niet gebruikt werd...).

Helaas geen artikel kunnen vinden, maar dacht dat hier citizend science data wel uitgeknepen werd


[..] an exponential growth in the number of publications [about insects] that used community photos since 2006, with iNaturalist seeing a majority of that growth. With access to this body of citizen-science observations, researchers can potentially expand their pool of data and design studies to answer new questions about insects.


Heeft OIF nu het kaas van zijn brood laten eten ? Van 2004 (wanneer is eigenlijk ontstaan? 2008?) tot  2017 stond OIF bovenaan. Grappig dat na augustus 2018 een website een flinke inhaalslag maakt.
