Data Records

The data in this 出現紀錄 resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 976 records.

This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.

研究區域描述 The Foraminifera and Ostracoda Microfossil collection at the American Museum of Natural History was established in 1935 and contains 7000 specimen lots keyed into seminal monographs on foraminifera and ostracoda.The collection is important because of its broad range, making it possible to study the diversity of these organisms and their distribution geographically, and over geologic time. The collection was at risk due to suboptimal storage and lack of databasing. Specimens were identified, rehoused, conserved and catalogued. Data associated with specimens are made available to the public and researchers via the online database, along with digital images of over 1,000 specimens and CT-scan images of 50 specimens. The improvements to this collection will enhance its utility and accessibility for researchers and students. Correctly identified and curated specimens will be used in evolutionary studies and in research in which foraminifera are used to evaluate the impacts of present and past climate change on ecosystems.
