Labs and Organizations

This is a list of those who have made significant use of mx.

  • Andy Deans Lab
    • Comprehensive data handling: specimens, sequences, images, matrices, taxonomic descriptions, etc.
  • John Heraty Lab
    • Chalcidoid super matrix for HymATOL, over 400 illustrated characters by 80 taxa, lab matrices
  • Evanioidea Online
    • Taxonomic catalog for all of Evanioidea, keys, taxon pages, specimens.
  • The HISL Lab
    • Taxonomic catalog for all xyleborine species (Curculionidae: Scolytinae). This relational database currently contains all 1,288 valid taxa and 469 synonyms, 5,000 locality and host entries and 19,000 citations. It surpasses the bounded catalog (Wood & Bright 1992) with the integration of bibliographical information for each taxonomic entry. Full references are given for 97% of the citations. It is easily updated, revised and accessible to those interested in scolytine taxonomy, pest species, and biodiversity studies.
    • A literature database of scolytine of approximately 27,000 references spanning the 1700?s to 2000. This database includes most of the literature contained in Wood (1987), Wood & Bright (1992), and Bright & Skidmore (1997, 2002).
    • Electronic Monograph of Camptocerus. ~200 images, ~60 characters, label data for ~100 specimens, ~100 references, and a key to four species. Upon completion the monograph will address 45 OTUs, contain label data for ~500 specimens and display ~32 species pages. Approximate data of completion January 1, 2010.
