Partnerships for Enhancing Expertise in Taxonomy - PEET

The National Science Foundation (NSF), in partnership with academic institutions, botanical gardens, freshwater and marine institutions, and natural history museums, seeks to enhance and stimulate taxonomic research and help prepare future generations of experts. NSF's Partnership for Enhancing Expertise in Taxonomy (PEET), supports competitively reviewed research projects that target groups of poorly known organisms. This effort is designed to encourage the training of new generations of taxonomists and to translate current expertise into electronic databases and other formats with broad accessibility to the scientific community. Three major elements are included in the PEET projects: 1. Monographic Research; 2. Training; and 3. Computer Infrastructure.
