Grants supporting the Orthoptera Species File


OSF grants funded for 2018:

The OSF grants committee received eighteen applications from fifteen countries (Cuba, Brazil, France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Russia, Pakistan, India, China, Singapore, Algeria, Cameroon) from which the following proposals were funded (listed below). The proposals were selected based on the amount of data (images, specimen records, etc.) that is expected to be added to the Orthoptera Species File or to any other Species File within Polyneoptera. Consideration of a candidate's expertise was given in addition to the relationship of the proposal to the candidate's taxonomic research project.
