about   Todd O'Brien
These web pages and their taxonomic content are currently under construction and review.

We are working to combine multiple taxonomic systems from historical NODC taxa codes, ITIS, WoRMS, and AlgaeBase ... and linking them into the 70+ years of historical taxonomic content present in the COPEPOD plankton database.   As such, we have a mess and headache of synonyms, spelling differences, and outdated taxonomic structures.

You are welcome to view these pages, but be aware that errors exist and likewise will appear/disappearance as we progress.

If you would like to provide feedback or corrections, please contact:
