The Global Pollen Project is a web-based tool to enable:
crowdsourcing of pollen identification using images; and
digitisation of existing pollen reference material.
The ideas behind the tool, and the development of the initial 1.0 release, are discussed in detail in the following publication:
Martin A.C., and Harvey, W. J. (2017). The Global Pollen Project: A New Tool for Pollen Identification and the Dissemination of Physical Reference Collections. Methods in Ecology and Evolution. Accepted
