Trying to solve current issues with invertebrate taxonomy – the conceptual web-based application
Languages of publication
The information considering taxonomy of invertebrates is mostly comprised of scientific articles and few softwares which are comprehensible only for the specialists of a narrow field. Till now, new invertebrates species are being described on a daily basis by a means of morphological and molecular data. Emergence of comprehensive database which is updated regularly eases access to much more needed information. Any kind of means of identification by non-specialists are most welcome. The concept of integrative taxonomy is not new but the one proposed in our work idea of combination both morphology and DNA dates in web-based application which will be available for everyone, not only for specialists in this field, seems to be an invaluable. This is a conceptual multi platform web application based on a single determination step for each individual to the species level identification.
