In Taxonomic Paper manuscripts intended for publication in Biodiversity Data Journal, specimen records can be imported either manually, or from Darwin Core-compliant Excel spreadsheets, or online from GBIF, BOLD, iDigBio, and PlutoF.
Step 1. Expand the Materials section of the treatment for which you want to import specimen or occurrence records by clicking on the pen next to it.
Step 2. Occurrence record import from PlutoF is possible via the specimen ID of the record(s).
For the import to be successful, enter the specimen ID of the record(s) and paste it/them in the search interface. Select the PlutoF source and click Add. You may separate several ID’s by the pipe ("|") symbol.
* Search and find the record(s) you would like to import on the PlutoF workbench (https://plutof.ut.ee/), copy the Specimen ID’s of the record(s) and paste it/them in the search interface as shown in Step 2.
