LINNE will incorporate the latest technologies to link scientists with other scientists, biological collections, and state-of-the-art instruments for efficient species discovery, description, and classification. It will attract students to taxonomy and create opportunities for the development of new careers. Expertise and data will be accessible throughout the world for educational and outreach activities. Information will be readily available to elementary students and their teachers, providing opportunities for exposure to biological diversity and appreciation for nature in the most formative years.
