What's new at Annelid Resources pages?
Additions and development history
(For new external
links check the Field Trips pages also.)
October and November 2000
- Added a book review page. Updated somewhat the page on Phylogeny of annelids
- Added Summary of Frank Licher's monograph and synonymy index to
Typosyllis (not in the printed monograph). Added Rob Blakemore's report on exotic earthworms in Australia. Earlier
Annelid Resources appeared as the featured site visit in "Science" issue of 28 July.
- Continual updating in the first months of year 2000, including polychaetologist addresses. Annelid allies category on the main pages now
largely integrated with the main annelid groups. Images page now mostly
points to onsite pages, the search engines, and major image archives. New pages for New Zealand polychaetes (under construction) and for Schmarda's colour plates.
- Annelid Resources well reviewed in the Scout Report for Science & Engineering of November 10, 1999. A search
engine added to the home page.
June - September 1999
- Moved ANNELIDA list information from the Annelid Resources home page to its own page here. Added a page on the rare NZ
spionid Spio aequalis. Added a background page and a download page for Chris Glasby's
free PDF copy of his namanereid monograph. Also updated the
pages on books and journals and on phylogeny of annelids and allies.
- Guide to writing zoological names for non-taxonomists
October and November 1998
- The usual updating, plus a (brief!) 1998 6th IPC in Brazil, Conference
report, and (more substantially) the Abstracts of the 6th IPC
1998 (author/title listing with links to abstracts), and a short preliminary notice of the
2001 7th IPC in Iceland.
- It's been a quiet few months for Annelid Resources due to lack of time for new developments.
However, new external links have been kept up-to-date, as has the researcher address list PRO, and
some maintenance and updating of old files has been completed. A new translation was added. Old
copies of PRO have been removed to avoid confusion for people using old links.
- The earthworm-eater planarian, Artioposthia triangulata
gets a home page. Status of the Annelida now covers Fauchald and
Rouse's recent historical review and family-level cladistic papers.
- Polychaete Researchers Online has been thoroughly revised and is
presented in a new format which should be even easier to use and, perhaps more importantly, easy
to update and insert new entries. For the diehards preferring hardcopy there is a downloadable
version formatted for printing.
- The annelid resources pages are currently undergoing a spring-cleaning after our host server moves again
and re-opens at University of New Orleans http://biodiversity.uno.edu/. Drop me a line if you see
anything that doesn't work.
