A5 WoRMS: Forams in the internet
bottom
top

Summary

The information about foraminifera in the many parallel sources on the internet, from e-forams to wikipedia, is of variable precision, different quality and many times contradictory. We risk to have an even larger taxonomical chaos in the internet than with the extensive printed information used sofar. Marc Costello's initiative about a census of recent foraminiferal species in the frame of the WoRMS project recently published on the Paleonet was the reason to organize this side-meeting. This should give Marc and the various other initiators of similar projects a stage to expose briefly their plan and show the goals, illustrating them by a few examples of the final product. It would permit to discuss the projects, detect their eventual overlaps and to organize commun efforts where necessary.
