This dataset contains occurrences from a paper by J.L. Barnard (1965) on marine Amphipoda from selected atolls in Micronesia, Pacific Ocean.
Two large collections of intertidal and sublittoral Amphipoda were made on several atolls of Micronesia, one containing material collected by Dr. D. P. Abbott of Stanford University and Dr. F. M. Bayer of the Smithsonian Institution on Ifaluk Atoll, and by Dr. Cadet Hand of the University of California on Kapingamarangi Atoll, and the other by Dr. D. J. Reish of Long Beach State College, California, on Eniwetok, Majuro, and Bikini atolls. The Abbott-Bayer-Hand collection was made available to the author by Dr. Fenner A. Chace, Jr. of the U.S. National Museum, and a small grant was provided' from the National Research Council for initial sorting of the specimens. The collections of Dr. Reish were made possible by help from the Atomic Energy Commission. All specimens have been deposited in the U.S. National Museum.
The data in this occurrence 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 416 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.
