ABOL BioBlitz 2019
within the Days of Biodiversity
Dear friends and Biodiversity enthusiasts,
The Days of Biodiversity (TdA), which take place in various federal states, have been among the most important events for years, on the one hand informing the public about the importance of biodiversity and, on the other hand, successively improving the data basis for the occurring species of various regions in Austria.
This year for the first time ABOL will participate in these actions. The aim of ABOL is to generate DNA barcode sequences from as many of the animals and fungi as possible collected by the experts.
We hope that as many experts as possible will support us. By assisting with ABOL BioBlitz your taxonomic expertise will make a valuable contribution to the genetic capture of Austrian biodiversity!
Your ABOL coordination team
The Days of Biodiversity are attended by many people who share a large part of the total societal knowledge of biodiversity. Cooperation with these biodiversity experts is a big concern of ABOL. Through the concerted action of the Days of Biodiversity and ABOL, we want to add value in a number of ways.
The focus will probably be on insects and fungi, but we do not exclude other groups of organisms – experts for other groups of organisms (plants, invertebrates away from insects, etc.) please be sure to contact the ABOL coordination team in advance.
In general, we would like to clarify the procedure in advance with you (e.g. labeling of the samples and the reference organism, deposit of the voucher copies, etc.)
Unlike previous days of biodiversity, we ask you
Experts get from ABOL
