Arthur Stelfox--Diary of insects, chiefly hymenoptera, 1932-33, Vol. 5
About the Project
Did you know that seventy-five percent of plants need pollinators to reproduce—and those pollinators are in global decline? Part of helping solve the pollinator crisis is understanding the history of those insect species.
Get a crucial look at the pollinator populations of Ireland’s past thanks to Arthur Stelfox’s field notes. Stelfox, a naturalist with the National Museum of Ireland specializing in Hymenoptera, took this set of field notes while collecting insects throughout Ireland. Join other digital volunteers in transcribing Stelfox’s 1932-33 field notes for the next generation of entomologists!
