This dataset is from a paper by Dora P. Henry (1957) about some littoral barnacles from the Tuamotu, Marshall and Caroline Islands.
A small number of barnacles collected by the Pacific Science Board expeditions at three localities - Ngarumaoa, Tuamotu Islands; South Loi Island, Marshall Islands; and Ifaluk Atoll, Caroline Islands - was sent to the author for identification. In all, there are seven species: three from the Caroline Islands, one from the Marshall Islands, and four, including one new species, from the Tuamotu Islands. In addition, a few barnacles collected by the Albatross at Makemo, Tuamotu Islands, were borrowed from the U.S. National Museum (USNM) to compare with the new material.
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 14 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.
