News record: [110584] New Help Documents:

Links to a new Online Users Manual and protocol for good imaging practices, ENBI--Digital Imaging of Biological Type Specimens, have been added to assist in using Morphbank and in imaging specimens. The Morphbank Online Users Manual is constantly updated as new versions of Morphbank become live and the software develops. This reference helps answer some of the most common questions users have found while working with the Morphbank system.

The second link is for the extremely valuable imaging resource. Digital Imaging of Biological Type Specimens: A Manual of Best Practice, edited by C Hauser, A Steiner, J Holstein and Malcolm J Scoble. This manual is the result from the study of the European Network for Biodiversity Information conducted in 2005 and is available for download from the group collaboration services of GBIF. An excellent reference for anyone interested in specimen imaging techniques.
