    The Ostracoda list attempts to include representatives of all Ostracoda (orders Podocopida, Myodocopida and Platycopida) found living in marine or brackish waters in the study area. We estimate that the list is now approximately 80% complete and will continue to work to update and complete it. We have attempted to achieve an even geographical coverage; however, the focus of our attention has been on shelf and coastal waters, and we are aware of a considerable body of literature on deep-sea benthonic ostracods from which species lists remain to be abstracted. For the time being we have chosen not to add geographical distribution information to the list, but we are currently developing a GIS application which will enable distribution maps to be produced. A limitation of the list is uncertainty as to whether many of the taxa are actually living today in the areas where they have been recorded, since many have been identified only on the basis of shells (without "soft parts") found in Recent sediments and may therefore be fossil or "subfossil"; we hope to be able to indicate, eventually, which taxa can been verified as "living".
