Nomina Collembola Belgica
In 1995, I have received from Dr Patrick Grootaert of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences a large set of undetermined Collembola specimens from the Belgian collection.
Status:
Printed key of the species of Pseudosinella in DELTA
Based on Dr Christiansen's inter-active key of the genus Pseudosinella in DELTA, I have made a printed version of this key as an excercise to get familiar with the DELTA system.
Status:
Collembola of the Italian pre-Alps
Dr Gianluca Governatori of the Università degli Studi di Udine, Dipartimento di Biologia Applicata alla Difesa delle Piante, asks me to determine some Collembola specimens from the environments of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy.
Status:
Revision of Arrhopalites in DELTA
Due to my (limited) experience with DELTA, in November 1996, Dr Christiansen contacted me to join a project of Dr Zeppelini on the revision of Arrhopalites using the DEscriptive Language for TAxonomy (DELTA) by Mike J. Dallwitz of the CSIRO Division of Entomology in Canberra, Australia
Status:
Collembola of the Canadian grasslands
On May 27, 1997, Dr Dan L. Johnson of the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Research Centre of Lethbridge, Canada offers me to join a collaborative research project on Collembola of the Canadian grasslands. This project would include any of the following topics: ecology, diversity, activity, comparisons via DNA analysis.
Status:
Aggregations of Hypogastrura (Hypogastrura) ripperi in Lethbridge, Canada
On June 5, 1997, Dr Dan L. Johnson of the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Research Centre of Lethbridge, Canada asks me to confirm his tentative determination of 'Ceratophysella pseudarmata' from high density aggregations in Lethbridge, Canada.
Status:
Checklist of the Collembola from the Rockie Mountains of Alberta, Canada
On June 13, 1997, Dr Dan L. Johnson of the Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada Research Centre of Lethbridge, Canada offers me to join this collaborative project.
Status:
Key to the Species of the Collembola of the World
On October 12, 1998, the idea to start with this Key2000 project was born.
Status:
Contribution to the knowledge of the Collembola of subterraneous environments from Belgium
On December 12, 2001, Dr Michel Dethier contacted me to join a project on Collembola of subterraneous environments from Belgium Status:
