Concurrent Research
In Synthetic Taxonomy


Due to carefully-worded grant funding, HORG continues to narrow its scientific focus on the study and classification of occlupanids. This page illuminates various occlupanid-related projects of cultural significance from outside persons and organizations. In addition, we list here concurrant research on other microsyntherids, and publications concerning synthetic taxonomies.  All at no cost to ourselves!
