This is a primer on adding (previously published) descriptions to Taxon Profile Pages in SCAN (or in Symbiota more generally). Examples are related to the Weevils of North America (WoNA) checklist. For sake of simplicity this entry uses descriptions that were previously digitized and are available through the Biodiversity Heritage Library.
Here is an exemplary, step-wise procedure to add a SCAN taxon description. Doing so requires permission to be a Taxon Profile Editor (such permissions are granted by portal administrators).
