The data files below are full-taxa compilations that contain all taxa groups. If you only want data from a single taxa group|
(e.g., only barcodes for copepods or pteropods), follow the taxa group links found under main map pages.
The "All Zooplankton" files contain data from all of the zooplankton (crustacean+non-crustacean) taxa groups and subgroups.
The "All Ichthyoplankton" files contain data from all of the ichthyoplankton taxa groups and subgroups.
The "All Plankton Combo" files contain all data from the All Zooplankton and the All Ichthyoplankton combined files.
The "World (All-World-Oceans)" geographic region includes data from all of the other ocean and seas sub-regions.
The "Mode-A" files contain sequences for species found in the current ocean, but those sequences may come from any other ocean.
The "Mode-B" files contain sequences sampled only in the current ocean for species found in the current ocean.
The entire MZGdb database is therefore available via the "All Plankton Combo (All-World-Oceans) Mode-A" data files.
