Venom on Ice - data collected from the CEAMARC voyage of the Aurora Australis, voyage 3 2007-2008
Entry ID: CEAMARC_CASO_200708_V3_Venom

Abstract: Accompanying excel spreadsheet details the DNA samples taken and venom glands obtained and associated date/location/depth collection site data.

Each specimen will be DNA barcoded using the diagnostic 600bp region of the mitochondrial COI gene and sequences lodged on GenBank. DNA barcoding will aid in evaluating the extent of cephalopod biodiversity including revealing cryptic species and ... View entire text

Quality Date, depth, location quality excellent.

2018-09-25 - The original files was reformatted to fit OBIS/GBFI/IPT Biodiversity.AQ tracking standards, and a new datasheet "CEAMARC_Venomous_animals2007_08.csv" was created. The new dataset contains datasetID, occurrenceID, eventID, eventRemarks, locality, verbatimLatitude, verbatimLongitude, decimalLatitude, decimalLongitude, continent, countryCode, occurrenceStatus, organismQuantity, organismQuantityType, basisOfRecord, minimumDepthInMeters, maximumDepthInMeters, samplingProtocol, and associatedReferences. The lowest taxonomical rank of the species identified that could be determined is provided, after matched in WoRMS (World Register of Marine Species).
