Modern foraminifera in the New Zealand EEZ

Latest version published by Southwestern Pacific Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS) Node on Aug 8, 2018 Southwestern Pacific Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS) Node

Biodiversity data of the modern foraminifera in the New Zealand EEZ sourced from Dr Bruce Hayward at Geomarine Research. These data come from two projects: (1) modern deep-sea (100-5000 m water depth) foraminifera; and (2) a 7 year project (1991-1998) on the biodiversity and ecological distribution of modern brackish and shallow-water (0-100 m) foraminifera around New Zealand.

Data Records

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 16,998 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.
