The SERTC Invertebrate Database: Marine Invertebrates of the southeastern United States
The Southeastern Regional Taxonomic Center (SERTC), at the South Carolina
Department of Natural Resources, provides services as a taxonomic resource to
students, educators and scientists working on coastal invertebrates of the
South Atlantic Bight (SAB). A regionally focused and data based voucher
collection of coastal aquatic ... invertebrates is held at the center (including
material preserved specially for future molecular work), as well as a digital
image library and an extensive taxonomic literature collection relating to the
SAB region. SERTC also provides the resources for the computerization of the
fish collection catalog of the Grice Marine Laboratory (College of Charleston).
2300 records from benthic grabs, benthic dredges, trawls, plankton tows, hand
collection, scuba collection, submersible collection representing 643 taxa.
