RAMS Mysida

Number of taxa: 108
Number of species: 61
Number of accepted species: 56

The data presented here are extracted from NeMys, a database system developed to store a variety of types of biological information on mainly marine taxa in a fully digital way. The concept of storing data on morphology, biogeography, taxonomy, literature, pictures, collections and molecular analyses in one dataset, creates a large group of possible end users and makes it possible to analyse and compare data on a taxonomic group from different points of view.

The database was developed at the Marine Biology Section (Ghent University) mainly with focus on marine Nematoda and Mysida. Data input is done at the Marine Biology Section (Ghent University). Information on species worldwide is entered, but to a certain extent, priorities for data logging follow from the activities of the section - which includes Antarctic Research.

It is intended that this register will be kept synchronous with the world list, and will provide the most up to date information on the marine diversity of Mysida of Antarctica.
