Biotic Survey and Inventory of French Polynesian Terrestrial Arthropods

This project surveys the arthropod fauna of the high islands of French Polynesia, with the goals to identify, database, and map, the diversity of species, both endemic and invasive.  The project will disseminate information in French Polynesia through science fairs, such as the Fete des Sciences, open houses for K-12 students, workshops for officials and scientists, and visual products, including exhibits, brochures, CDs, and collections to be maintained in French Polynesia and elsewhere.
