Contents include: Polychaete Bibliography (the literature of three centuries of research), ANNELIDA e-mail list, Polychaete Research (including addresses of polychaetologists, International Polychaetology Association information, 1995 conference abstracts, 1998 conference abstracts, and a report on the 1998 Brazil conference, Oligochaete and Leech Research, Annelid systematics and taxonomy (including faunal lists, new ideas on polychaete phylogeny, World list of, and higher classification of Polychaete families, glossary of polychaete terminology, clitellate (leech and oligochaete) classification), biographies/In Memoriams of well-known scientists, translations of polychaete papers, Field trips to Polychaete, Oligochaete, Vent-worm, ice-worm, and annelid-allies places, Museum collections, and much else.
Field Trips is the page with almost all external links on annelid worms, including non-scientific, whereas Research Resources is more research oriented, and Systematics and Taxonomy is the place to go for background on those topics.
Navigate quickly: The link at the top of every page will jump you directly to the start of each of the three main branches of [Research Resources], [Systematics and Taxonomy], and [Field Trips (Links)]. From there you can jump to another branch or to this page. Otherwise use the "back" button as usual for small steps & the "return to top" within long pages.
Hints for searching: Use quotes for phrases. Pico search now supports
Booleans, parentheses and +-. Do not use truncation symbols.

In the Scout Report for Science & Engineering of November 10, 1999 the Annelid Resources site was described as a "stupendous resource" and a "major hub for experts and students".
|As well as many cross-links within the wider community of biologist colleagues, the Annelid Resources site is included by scholarly meta sites compiled by librarians and educators, such as the BUBL information service for the higher education community in the UK, and by edited directory services such as the Open Directory Project (ODP), whose content is used by several search sites (such as FullWebInfo). I don't keep track of these, but may add a few more as I rediscover them.|
|Annelid resources was the site visit for Science's netwatch column of 28 July 2000 (see Science vol. 289 (5479) - "Keep abreast of what Darwin's successors have discovered about annelids ... ".|
