Queensland Museum Other Invertebrates - marine records

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Mar 12, 2019 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

With the Great Barrier Reef our most important marine biodiversity resource, the Queensland Museum has a strong focus on marine invertebrates, including sessile, free-living and parasitic species. Much material has come from the CIDARIS Expeditions of the 1980s, the Great Barrier Reef Seabed Biodiversity Project 2003-2006 and more recent research-funded collecting along the eastern seaboard.

The Queensland Museum Other Invertebrates collection includes members from the following taxa: Eumetazoa, Acanthocephala, Annelida, Braciopoda, Bryozoa, Cnidaria, Ctenophora, Echinodermata, Hemichordata, Nematoda, Nemertea, Onychophora, Platyhelminthes, Sipuncula and Tunicata.

This dataset is of marine species sourced from the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) January 2019 (https://collections.ala.org.au/public/show/co201). Taxa have been matched to the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) and if not then matched to the Australian Faunal Directory (AFD)
