It is desirable for each taxonomist to follow the rule of Occam's razor: "Entities are not to be multiplied without necessity" (Non sunt multiplicanda entia sine necessitate). The purpose of Taxonomy-science is to understand and restore order, and not to describe as many new species as possible.
Dear Colleagues and Visitors
Maintaining and updating the site requires a lot of time and effort. Therefore, we are forced to introduce a partially paid access. We expect that the costs will not be too burdensome for you, and your money will help us in the development of interactive keys, and more dynamic updates of the site. 1 year subscription for only €50 Hope for your understanding and thank you for continuing interest P.S.

This project is the result of our personal initiative, effort, and funding. Presently we do not have any external funding support and if we are unable to raise enough funds through your donations, it will be necessary to limit some functions of the website. Maintenance, updates and development will also see significant negative impacts. It is our desire to provide a beautiful, functional and useful tool for all students of Carabidae. Your generosity can help us realize this goal and keep this resource available to everyone into the future.
