The field work, lab research, and database development and maintenance have been supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Office of Polar Programs (OPP). Collections development and maintenance have been supported by the NSF Office of Polar Programs (OPP) and NSF Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) Biological Collections Research (formerly Research Collections in Systematics and Ecology) and by the KU Natural History Museum and Biodiversity Research Center (KUNHM/BRC).

Finally, I would like to thank all the current and former students and staff who helped to develop the databases and who help to maintain and expand them: Michelle Ammerman, Andrea Carroll, Sean Hill, Janna Lang, Carmen Schmidt, Song Perk Sem, Phoebe Smith, Patrick Staullbaumer, Marianna Zelenak, and especially Berry Clemens, who started the bibliography project; Stephane Marty, who set up the original web interface; Stacy Cain, who worked so hard to enter information and update both databases, and Vents Ivanov, who has maintained and improved both databases and our web pages for the last several years.
