How to Use This Site
The unit of the search is species. By using the explore taxonomy button, any single species can be selected from a list organized by families. By using the “explore species” button a query for a single accepted species can be done. After that a species is selected a result page is returned. The page contains a map where specimens for which a COI sequence is available in green and location data for which only the occurrence is available indicated with cyan dots. The list of the specimens for which a COI sequence is available is also provided together with their ID, coordinates and collection date.
The "download" button allows the downloading of the following data separately:
- Occurrence data: CSV, JSON and GEOJSON
- COI sequences: FASTA
- Host plants: CSV
- Species traits: CSV
