Abstract:Biodiversity studies and conservation measures depend on good and up-to-date taxonomic data. General faunistic lists are the result of long periods of sampling. How many species on a global list are actually living in an area can only be answered by updating inventories. The progressive disappearance of taxonomic specialists and the undervaluation of their work is not only unjustified, but could lead to specialists from other disciplines working with meaningless data.
