Encyclopedia of Life – Biologia Centrali-Americana

DESCRIPTION: Interns will participate in marking up text, in XML format, for the many different species that are being added to new and existing EOL pages. These texts are part of the Biologia Centrali-Americana, a large, rare, work on the flora and fauna of Mexico and Central America from the late 19th-early 20th century. For many species, this is still the only source of information and images, so it is important to include this work in EOL.

QUALIFICATIONS: Background and interest in biology; basic text editing experience; ability to focus and pay great attention to detail.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES: Interns will learn more about the flora and fauna of Mexico and Central American as well as contribute to the Encyclopedia of Life.

TIMETABLE: Indefinite
