Expert contributors submit text and images for each genus or species page in the database. Contact us about becoming a contributor of genus or species content. Analysts, students, ecologists and taxonomists are all encouraged to provide content. We may provide training or workshops in 2013 if there is sufficient interest. Please see: Information for new contributors.

For the initial release of the database, Marina Potapova, Sarah Spaulding and Mark Edlund were the primary contributors of genus and species pages. Contributors of species pages include experts supported by the USGS NAWQA program, students and taxonomists. The content of each taxon page is the ongoing responsibility of the expert contributor. Comments and corrections to a taxon should be directed to specific contributors, as we hope to keep the pages current.
