Electron Microscope Database
Entry ID: em_database


Summary
Abstract: This database contains information pertaining to the negatives taken by the laboratory since its inception. Both scanning and transmission electron micrographs are catalogued within this database.

Among other things, the database includes a large number of images of protists.

The URLs provided link to a marine specimens database, and a terrestrial and limnetic specimens database.

Quality
Approximately 90% of the negatives have been archived, of these a very limited selection have been scanned and catalogued in the database. The data are of variable quality.


Access Constraints
Data are stored digitally in an ORACLE database. Archived in non digital form also (photographic negatives). Data available in both digital form (scanned images) and non digital forms (photographic negatives). See the investigator for details.

Marine species distribution data are published to SCAR-MarBIN, OBIS and GBIF. Terrestrial and limnetic species distribution data are published to GBIF.
