Polychaete Identification There are a series of keys in the system. Darwin Initiative project, we are exploring the use of the Internet as a mechanism for quickly exchanging taxonomic information. Taxonomic Information across the Internet is a collaborative venture between the UK and Thailand.
from the University of Delaware - Molecular biologist Craig S. Cary, an assistant professor within the University of Delaware’s College of Marine Studies, says the Pompeii worm is the most heat-tolerant creature on Earth, enduring temperatures up to 176 degrees Fahrenheit (80 degrees Celsius).
The iceworm is one of many organisms in the seafloor ecosystem supported by naturally seeping hydrocarbons in the Gulf of Mexico.

This checklist embraces, with synonymical bibliography, all benthic, supralittoral and pelagic amphipods (Gammaridea, Caprellidea & Hyperiidea) occuring in the Southern Ocean. 883 taxa have been recorded: 711 spp. & subspp. for Gammaridea, 28 for Caprellidea, and 69 for Hyperiidea, as well as 75 unidentified taxa.
The hagfish is one of the most despised creatures in the ocean. Its very name inspires disgust. But does the hagfish deserve its reputation? Maybe it is time to stand up for a fish that can’t stand up for itself. Let’s look at the charges against the poor hag.
The newsletter contains information concerning meetings and conferences, publications of interest to echinoderm biologists, titles of theses on echinoderms, and research interests, and addresses of echinoderm biologists. Individuals who desire to receive the newsletter should send their name, address and research interests to the editor.
I decided to create a web site to provide information to others about brittle stars. This site has general information and cool facts, plus more some details of my previous undergraduate and current doctoral research. In addition, I have provided fairly unique information on museums and research collections around the world that have specimens of echinoderms. Such collections are fundamental to any phylogenetic (evolutionary) and taxonomic research. You can also find some information on funding sources for your graduate research

An integrated collection of Internet gateways covering the health and life sciences
The NBII is an electronic gateway to biological data and information maintained by federal, state, and local government agencies; private sector organizations; and other partners around the nation and the world. The NBII, a USGS-led initiative, is dedicated to the development of an electronic “federation” of biological data and information sources. Its success rests on a growing network of partners who share biological information. The goal of the NBII is to provide swift user access to biological databases, information products, directories, and guides maintained by Federal, State, and local government agencies, non-government institutions, and private sector organizations in the United States and around the world. This section provides overview information about the planning and development of the NBII.
The Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) is a partnership of U.S., Canadian, and Mexican agencies, other organizations, and taxonomic specialists cooperating on the development of an on-line, scientifically credible, list of biological names focusing on the biota of North America. ITIS is also a participating member of Species 2000, an international project indexing the world’s known species.

Reliable information on marine bioluminescence is widely scattered in the literature and in unpublished data. While this is merely an inconvenience to the relatively small core of investigators actively working in the discipline, there is a much larger group of life scientists, oceanographers and applied marine scientists who frequently come upon problems involving bioluminescence and who might have little awareness of the availability and reliability of information on the subject.
