Description
This dataset represents a pre-filtered subset of the Bishop Museum Natural History Specimen Data, as made available through the Bishop Museum (BPBM) DiGIR provider. The filter criteria for this dataset restricts the complete dataset to only organisms taken from marine environments, and only records that have geo-reference coordinates assigned to them. The data consist primarily of vouchered specimens in the Ichthyology, Marine Invertebrate, and Algae collections of BPBM. Other marine records that are not yet included in the pre-filter, but will be added, include marine mammals, reptiles and birds. Also missing are marine malacological specimens, which will be added at a later time. more

Data have been made available online with support from the Pacific Basin Information Node (PBIN) of the U.S. National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII). BPBM data records may be used by individual researchers or research groups, but they may not be repackaged, resold, or redistributed in any form without the express written consent of a curatorial staff member of the BPBM. If any of these records are used in an analysis or report, the provenance of the original data must be acknowledged and the BPBM notified. The Bernice P. Bishop Museum and its staff are not responsible for damages, injury or loss due to the use of these data.
