Case Studies

BGE relies on the invaluable help of an army of citizen scientists to help us build the map of European biodiversity. Find out more about our citizen science initiatives.

BGE will engage with citizen scientists through a series of workshops and open days targeting all levels -from school children to students, from employees of national parks to amateur expert taxonomists. The workshops use activities and games to show the crucial role of invertebrates in the environment and make participants familiar with the concepts of DNA barcoding as well as the main field methods for collecting, preserving and identifying insects. These activities are also important to explain the concept of DNA barcode library building and the interpretation of barcoding results.
