Leadership Team
Researchers at three organizations are providing key support for this campaign. Marianne Horak and Ted Edwards at CSIRO’s Division of Entomology in Canberra are leading the taxonomic work, and the Australian National Insect Collection, that they oversee, will be the major repository for barcoded specimens. Andrew Mitchell of the Scientific Collections Unit of the NSW Department of Primary Industries and Michelle Glover of CSIRO Entomology are co-ordinating specimen collections, identifications and data interpretation. Finally, researchers at the Biodiversity Institute of Ontario are responsible for the acquisition, curation and analysis of barcode records. Other researchers are making important contributions to specimen collections and identifications, but as this campaign is just beginning, additional participation will be critical to progress.
