The International Barcode of Life (iBOL) consortium presented Drs. Dan Janzen and Winnie Hallwachs on Thursday, Dec. 2, 2021, at 10:00 am EST for the second BIOSCAN: Illuminating Biodiversity webinar. The topic was "Nine Malaise Traps in Three Costa Rican Forest Hectares Catch ~ 40,000 Mostly Undescribed Species of Insects Among 1,521, 762+ Specimens in Seven Years: NOW WHAT?" During the webinar, “Dan Janzen discussed the BioAlfa project and its goal of achieving nationwide bioliteracy in Costa Rica by applying DNA barcoding technologies and data to construct a public biodiversity reference library. He deconstructed the project’s road map - from the collaborators involved in the field, sequencing technologies, and data platforms enabling the effort. BioAlfa is a flagship project for the global BIOSCAN program, led by the International Barcode of Life (iBOL) consortium. 4% of the world’s biodiversity lives on 25% of Costa Rican land. Janzen and biologist / partner Dr. Winnie Hallwachs are dedicated to enabling the permanent conservation of this biodiversity, making BioAlfa a global example of sustainable, non-damaging use of tropical wildland biodiversity integrated with, and wanted by, its society.
