|Title||Cataloguing and Digitizing the Herpetological Collections of MUHNAC and IICT|
|Funding||No funding was used.|
|Study Area Description||The specimens are originary from the former Portuguese overseas territories in Asia, namelly Macau (currently a territory of the People's Republic of China), Timor Leste ( currently the independent country of Timor Leste, also known as Timor Loro Sae or East Timor), and the Portuguese enclaves of Goa (now part of the Republic of India).|
|Design Description||The work consisted of cross checking the specimens and respective specimen labels, available field note books, catalogues and publications, to generate a consolidated electronic database. Taxonomic identity were reviewed following the most updated bibliography and in accordance with The Reptile Database [http://reptile-database.reptarium.cz/] and the Amphibia Species of the World v.6.0 [http://research.amnh.org/vz/herpetology/amphibia/] online databases. Once the database was prepared, the records pertaining to the Asian Herpetological collections of IICT were prepared for publication.|
