The Field Museum: PEET-Austral Staphylinidae

Staphylinidae, also known as rove beetles, is comprised by "one of the largest families of animals, presently including over 47,000 described species placed in roughly 3200 genera, grouped in up to 31 subfamilies, with many more species and genera yet to be described." The PEET (Partnerships for Enhancing Expertise in Taxonomy) project and website from Chicago's Field Museum, is studying this incredibly diverse animal group and offering databases and publications for perusal. Also at the site is a detailed description of the project's methods as well as a presentation of what has been found thus far from a field expedition to Chile. 2004 and 2005 field work will include trips to South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Also available at the site is a link to the project's staff.
