Fig. 2: Map of Mexico with collecting localities plotted by numbers of specimens collected at each point (graded symbol size: smallest = 1 specimen, largest = >100 specimens). For five points, to illustrate the redundancy of collecting localities among museums, we provide pie diagrams that illustrate the relative holdings of specimens from that particular site among scientific collections (see Acknowledgements for institutions and abbreviations). tionalities to collections data. Indeed, all of the advances of geographic information systems (GIS) open up to collections data once latitude and longi- tude data are available for the collecting localities for each specimen. Nevertheless, georeferencing collec- tions data - even once they are in electronic form - represents an enormous task. Integrating this task over many institutions, however, takes advantage not just of having more people to help in a large task, but also of the redundant nature of the geographic sampling of birds (Fig. 2). Indeed, more than 25 % of Mexican bird collecting localities occur in more than one museum, and some in more than 20 museums. This redundancy results from col- lections being dispersed among numerous museums (e.g., the specimens of Wilmot W. Brown from Chilpancingo, Guerrero), and from certain sites being especially accessible or well-known as collecting localities in particular regions (e.g.. Cerro San Felipe, Oaxaca). A first experiment in cooperative georeferencing is beginning in the mammal community in the United States. The MANIS network, a U.S. National Science Foundation-funded effort, is connecting 17 institu- tions with computerized holdings of mammal speci- mens. A first step in MANIS' integration efforts is the pooling of institutional lists of localities to be georef- erenced; institutions are then 'signing up' for particu-
