Description
The Southeastern Regional Taxonomic Center (SERTC), at the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, provides services as a taxonomic resource to students, educators and scientists working on the marine and coastal invertebrates of the South Atlantic Bight (SAB) Region. A regionally focused and data based voucher collection of preserved animals is held at the center (including material preserved specifically for future molecular work), as well as a digital image library and an extensive invertebrate taxonomic literature collection relating to the SAB region. more

SERTC also provides the resources for the computerization of the fish collection catalog of the Grice Marine Laboratory (College of Charleston). The SERTC Invertebrate Database aims to provide OBIS with much needed distributional information on the regional invertebrate fauna.
