Summary
Abstract: This study of plankton diversity at the Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study
(BATS) site is part of an initiative to create an online atlas of marine
diversity, the Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS), a database of
global marine animal and plant distributions. Planktonic communities comprise
a wide diversity of organisms that form the basis ... View entire text

Quality Data are put on-line in a reasonable amount of time. Before the data are put
on-line various quality control measures are used to evaluate the data.
However, there is no guarantee that some future evaluation of the data will not
reveal a problem with existing data on-line. Thus we would like you to submit
an e-mail address so that we may contact you should the data which you have
extracted become subject to change.

Will have data for most months for the time period of 1994 to 2000.
