This dataset is from a paper by Fenner a. Chace, Jr. (1955) on the shrimps of the Marshall Islands.
The collections on which the following notes are based were made during biological surveys of the northern Marshall Atolls of Eniwetok, Bikini, Rongelap, and Rongerik in 1946 and 1947, under the sponsorship of the U. S. Department of the Navy. Only the decapod shrimps of the families Penaeidae, Sergestidae, Pasiphaeidae, Processidae, Thalassocaridae, and the genera Automate and Athanas of the Alpheidae are included here.
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 38 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.
