First post

Hi there,

My name is Carlos Peña and I am involved in developing the NSG's voucher specimen database. This web application is what we, the NSG group, use to handle data for our research on the Systematics of the butterfly family Nymphalidae.

Thus, this blog is intended to record the efforts in making the voucher database and other databases (hopefully!) able handle biological data on Nymphalidae butterflies such as information of collection specimens, geographic distributions, molecular sequences, taxonomic literature and nomenclature of names.

Let's see how it goes!
