Following a very successful first expedition on DigiVol with ‘Proteaceae of Australia’ we are launching our second project ‘Ericaceae of Australia’.
Our first project was launched as part of WeDigBio, a global transcription event that ran between 19th and 22nd October 2017. During the event, 493 (15%) of our Proteaceae specimens were transcribed and three weeks on, our dedicated volunteers have nearly completed the transcription of a staggering 3282 specimens!
All 42,000 of our Australian flowering plant specimens are imaged, with minimal data records (filing name and region). We will continue to launch new expeditions and look forward to exploring our specimens with the fantastic Digivol volunteers as they unlock the data from our Australian material.
