LifeWatch-WoRMS NeMys Editor Workshop

On February 24th-26th 2015, the NeMys editors gathered at VLIZ to give the renewed NeMys a kick-start and to discuss future plans. Following the transfer of the World Database of Free-living Marine Nematodes – NeMys - to WoRMS in November 2014, a diverse editorial team was composed and plans were made to bring this team together for a kick-start of the renewed NeMys and to discuss the future plans. This NeMys workshop offered the editorial team the opportunity to make editorial agreements and discuss future plans and options in person. In addition, the Data Management team organized a one-day-hands-on training, teaching the editors how to work with the online editing interface. The gaps and issues that were identified prior to the workshop will be tackled by the team in the coming year. No less than 123 new Nematode species have been added to the database during the workshop and the higher classification was re-organized to comply with the latest accepted taxonomic standards for this group.
