DORSA (Digital Orthoptera Specimen Access) ist ein virtuelles Museum, das Informationen uber Typus-Exemplare von Orthopteren und andere Belege, welche uber die wichtigsten deutschen Museums-Sammlungen verstreut sind, in einer einzigen Datenbank zusammenfuhrt. Etwa 16.000 Individuen-Eintrage aus uber 4.000 Arten sind uber das Internet in der SYSTAX-Datenbank ( suchbar. SYSTAX stellt die Daten auch uber die GBIF (Global Biodiversity Information Facility)- und…

Baseline data for automated acoustic monitoring of Orthoptera in a Mediterranean landscape, the Hymettos, Greece
The regional spatio-temporal composition of Orthoptera species at the Hymettos near Athens, which is a Natura 2000 site under constant threat due to the surrounding megacity, is assessed and a song library is established as prerequisites for future automatic song detection.
Obtaining a better taxonomic understanding of native bees: where do we start?
There are more than 20 000 bee species worldwide, many of them vital pollinators of both native and cultivated plants, and a better taxonomic understanding is needed to assess the status of pollinators and pollination services.
Research between natural and cultural history information: Benefits and IT-requirements for transdisciplinarity
An approach to transdisciplinary information integration employing a core ontology based on the CIDOC-Conceptual Reference Model (ISO 21127) is described, which can be regarded as semantic glue between and within scientific and scholarly domains.


Two new species of Eupholidoptera Maran (Orthoptera, Tettigoniidae) from Crete with a checklist and key to the species
date nearly 50 species are recognized. The habitat of these bush-rickets is variable, ranging from humid to dry. They prefer coarse vegetation, especially prickly bushes and shrubs. They may be found
Version 2 of the Orthoptera species file online
Improvements include availability of more ranks in the hierarchy, more flexibility in the user's selection of information to be displayed, new search options, better conformity with the International Rules of Zoological Nomenclature, and automation of many editing functions.
