- 01-AUG-06 – 31-JUL-07
- With this project we wanted to create an electronic inventory of a number of scientifically important insect collections of the Zoology Museum in order to make them accessible to the general public. In total we inventoried 9284 insects of different orders from the collections of Goetghebeur, Hostie, Coomans, Kiriakoff, and Dufrance. This data is available to the public through the website of GBIF (www.gbif.org).
