AquRES Workshop

The main aim of this workshop was to bring together the specialists for both marine, marine Antarctic and freshwater taxa. During this 3 day meeting, the taxonomists discussed and crosschecked species occurring in the three aquatic species databases. In addition, the data entry and publication tools were demonstrated and tested, and the editors were engaged in completing distribution information. About 20 WoRMS-FADA-RAMS taxonomic editors participated, mostly from overlapping groups, i.e. groups that have representatives in both the marine and the freshwater realm and that are managed in both WoRMS and FADA. The selected taxa that were considered as examples are the Annelida (Hirudinea, Oligochaeta, Polychaeta), Crustacea (Amphipoda, Cladocera, Copepoda, Decapoda, Mysidacea, Ostracoda), Platyhelminthes (Turbellaria), Gastrotricha, Rotifera and Nematoda.
