Since October 2014, iDigBio has promoted biodiversity education by highlighting a different organism each month in our Newsletter in the Biodiversity Spotlight section. Each spotlight includes natural history information, current research, and links to relevant specimens in the iDigBio Portal. Each spotlight is created via collaboration among the iDigBio team, TCN members, other researchers, and nature photographers. View iDigBio's "Biodiversity Spotlight" archive below.
