Marine Birds MZUSP
Fabio Lang da Silveira and Rubens M. Lopes Collection of Marine Birds of South Atlantic. WSAOBIS, São Paulo, June 2008, Version 1.

Access data

Data derived from the bird collection in Museu de Zoologia of Universidade de Sao Paulo (MZUSP). more

This data set includes the results of the activities undertaken over some 110 years of development of the bird collection in Museu de Zoologia of Universidade de Sao Paulo (MZUSP), but refering only to marine species of South Atlantic, mainly from Brazil. The background history of the collection is given in Pinto (1945) over its initial years (1897-1945). The identification expertise of all voucher specimens are under the responsibility of the official curator, Dr Luis Fabio Silveira (Zoology Department, IB USP) - The classification system employed to organize the collection follows Remsen et al. (2008) with changes by CBRO (2008) and the historic classification information in the original label is given in the ‘notes’ field. For many specimens geo-referencing has been done by approximation from the original sample locality (old records) and there is no way to estimate the precision in these cases. Some bird groups in the collection have been recently reviewed, but not all. Voucher specimens are listed following the official code of the collection. Original data obtained from and registered into iOBIS on 2008-07-09. This dataset on OBIS-SEAMAP is a subset of marine mammal, seabird and/or sea turtle records from the dataset on iOBIS (Total number of records: 263) harvested into OBIS-SEAMAP on 2011-10-11. Dataset credit = Tropical and Subtropical Western South Atlantic OBIS.
