Survey on Outliers in Biodiversity Collections

iDigBio’s Outlier Detection and Documentation by Collectors (ODD Collectors) Working Group is conducting a survey related to your experience with outliers¬Ě (or “anomalies” or “oddities”) in biodiversity collections. For this survey, outliers are defined as individual specimens that differ from a previously documented or perceived general norm within a taxon in any biological characteristic such as morphology, anatomy, distribution, behavior, phenology, or ecology.

Your responses will be anonymous. Responses are requested by 22 March 2016.
