Quality
Data from the Australian Museum has not been verified or checked in a
systematic way. Data is often sourced from specimen labels, particularly for
old museum specimens and inaccuracy is often due to this fact.


Access Constraints
Data supplied to OBIS by the Australian Museum is freely accessible by the
public. The data supplied may not represent the total holdings of the Museum as
data about incompletely identified specimens, manuscript names and specimens
where a georeference cannot be calculated have normally been withheld from
publication.


Use Constraints
Data users should acknowledge the Australian Museum and also OZCAM, Australia's
Fauna.

Acknowledge the use of specific records from the Australian museum in the form
appearing in the 'Citation' field thereof (if any); and acknowledge the use of
the OBIS facility.

For information purposes, email to obissupport@marine.rutgers.edu the full
citation of any publication made (printed or electronic) that cites OBIS or any
constituent part.

Recognize the limitations of data in OBIS.
