Specimen photography at Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

Lead: Leslie Harris & Dean Pentcheff

Tuesday 14 November 2017 9:30–4:00
Annelida review of the Taxonomic Toolbox at OCSD

Lead: Kelvin Barwick
We will begin to review the Annelida section of the Toolbox on the web site. This is similar to the process we did a while back for the Mollusca. In that meeting we reviewed what was on the site and decided as a group what needed to be added, updated, changed or removed. This a good time to start this as we all gear up for another Bight survey. A time to, literally, compare notes. I suspect that this will take more than one meeting to complete.
