LepNet proposal team convenes at ASU

LepNetProposalMeeting

On July 3-4, 2014, a team including Neil Cobb (NAU), Katja Seltmann (AMNH), Nico Franz and Ed Gilbert (ASU) convened at Alameda to discuss plans to create a new Lepidoptera collections network (“LepNet”). Our main focus was to discuss use cases, workflows, and data schema models to represent “associations” of butterflies and moths in Symbiota. This would include the ability to submit searches by herbivore taxon (e.g., “Papilio indra“) and obtaining a list of associated plant taxa, based both on actual occurrence records stored in the network and in an “associations module” that can receive information published in various Symbiota-external sources.
