    New innovations are needed to speed up digitisation of insect collections. More than one half of all specimens in scientific collections are pinned insects. In Europe this means 500-1,000 million such specimens. Today's fastest mass-digitisation (i.e., imaging) systems ...

    Digitisation of natural history collections draws increasing attention. The digitised specimens not only facilitate the long-term preservation of biodiversity information but also boost the easy access and sharing of information. There are more than two billion specimen...
