Bibliographic information from 1758 to 1985 was entered into BASIS by Diane Houston, Laurel, Maryland and Karen Veilleux, Blacksburg, Virginia. Data from 1990 to 1995 were converted from a ProCite database developed by Karen Veilleux. The expertise of Karen has been particularly important since her librarian skills have added significantly to the quality of the overall references database. Yair Ben-Dov has been compiling the bibliographic information since 2005 to the present.
Information on the Cerococcidae, Diaspididae (Diaspidinae and Leucaspidinae), Eriococcidae, Grimaldiellidae, Halimococcidae, Inkaidae, Jersicoccidae, Kermesidae, Kukaspididae, Labiococcidae, Micrococcidae, Ortheziidae, Phenacoleachiidae, Phoenicococcidae and Stictococcidae were synthesized and entered by Barbara Denno, Maren Gimpel and Dug Miller.
Information on the Aclerdidae, Beesoniidae, Carayonemidae, Conchaspididae, Dactylopiidae, Kerriidae and Lecanodiaspididae were compiled and analyzed by Yair Ben-Dov and Victoria German. Yair Ben-Dov is compiling and analyzing the data on the Aclerdidae, Asterolecaniidae, Beesoniidae, Carayonemidae, Coccidae, Conchaspididae, Dactylopiidae, Diaspididae (Aspidiotinae, Comstockiellinae & Odonaspidinae), Grohnidae, Hammanococcidae, Kerriidae, Lebanococcidae, Lecanodiaspididae, Lithuanicoccidae, Margarodidae, Pennygullaniidae, Pseudococcidae, Serafinidae and Weitschatidae
Information on the Pseudococcidae and Coccidae was originally entered into a database different from BASIS by Yair Ben-Dov. Recent iterations and additions to the database have been input by Yair Ben-Dov, Victoria German and Yulia Bir.
Gary Gibson and Jennifer Read have converted the ProCite database and the Pseudococcidae and Coccidae documents into BASIS. This was no simple task!!!!! The work of Gary Gibson and Jennifer Read in reprogramming and adding enhancements to the BASIS program have been enormously important. Without their expertise, the ScaleNet concept would be no more than an impossible dream.
