Since yesterday (12th April) i started as Assistant Curator at Encyclopedia of Life (EOL), the first thing i did it was to correct some common names in English and Greek (1-2 also in Italian) and to add what common names in Greek was missing for Sharks (as you can see in the image).
Then i commented about some outdated IUCN threat statuses and put links with the new updated statuses.
For the first day i saw some mistakes that i didn't believe that were existed, like common names in English that didn't exist, or in Greek all the sharks have a common name just "Καρχαρίας - carcharias - karxarias".
I hope i will help enough to make it a better encyclopedia. It is already one of the best.

It feels wonderful to know that your photos are used for research.
These 2 following screenshots (from gbif and wordnik) are the latest example of using my photos.
Generally i have found my photos in websites of universities, online dictionaries, research ngo's and platforms.
I feel great to know that my photos are making an impact to change the world for the best...
I just received the following email...
Too bad, i wanted to participate on the CIESM Expert Task Force on Mediterranean Elasmobranchs. Maybe next time...
At least 2 people from Greece are participating and that's great news
