  • Biogeography, diversity, and evolution through vicariance of the hydrothermal vent aplacophoran genus Helicoradomenia (Aplacophora, Mollusca) 

    Scheltema, Amelie H. (National Shellfisheries Association, 2008-03)
    Species of the neomenioid aplacophoran genus Helicoradomenia Scheltema & Kuzirian are found only in areas of hydrothermal vents, oceanic ridges, and back-arc basins and have been collected widely in the East Pacific, ...
  • Mapping the biosphere : exploring species to understand the origin, organization and sustainability of biodiversity 

    Wheeler, Q. D.; Knapp, Sandra; Stevenson, D. W.; Stevenson, J.; Blum, Stan D.; Boom, B.. M.; Borisy, Gary G.; Buizer, J. L.; De Carvalho, M. R.; Cibrian, A.; Donoghue, M.

L.; Wilson, E. O.; Woolley, J. B. (Taylor & Francis, 2012-03-27)
    The time is ripe for a comprehensive mission to explore and document Earth's species. This calls for a campaign to educate and inspire the next generation of professional and citizen species explorers, investments in ...
  • A natural history of the deep-sea aplacophoran Prochaetoderma yongei and its relationship to confamilials (Mollusca, Prochaetodermatidae) 

    Scheltema, Amelie H.; Ivanov, Dmitry L. (2008-11-10)
    Previously published studies are woven together into a natural history of a deep-sea aplacophoran mollusc species, Prochaetoderma yongei Scheltema, 1985, and its confamilial species in the Prochaetodermatidae. This ...
  • On estimating the number of species from the discovery record 

    Solow, Andrew R.; Smith, Woollcott K. (Royal Society, 2005-02-04)
    A common approach to estimating the number of species in a taxonomic or other group is to extrapolate the temporal pattern of historical species discoveries or descriptions. A formal statistical approach to this problem ...
  • Scientific names of organisms : attribution, rights, and licensing 

    Patterson, David J.; Egloff, Willi; Agosti, Donat; Eades, David; Franz, Nico; Hagedorn, Gregor; Rees, Jonathan A.; Remsen, David P. (BioMed Central, 2014-02-04)
    As biological disciplines extend into the ‘big data’ world, they will need a names-based infrastructure to index and interconnect distributed data. The infrastructure must have access to all names of all organisms if it ...
  • Taxonomic indexing—extending the role of taxonomy 

    Patterson, David J.; Remsen, David P.; Marino, William A.; Norton, Cathy N. (Taylor & Francis, 2006-06)
    Taxonomic indexing refers to a new array of taxonomically intelligent network services that use nomenclatural principles and elements of expert taxonomic knowledge to manage information about organisms. Taxonomic indexing ...
  • The taxonomic name resolution service : an online tool for automated standardization of plant names 

    Boyle, Brad; Hopkins, Nicole; Lu, Zhenyuan; Garay, Juan Antonio Raygoza; Mozzherin, Dmitry; Rees, Tony; Matasci, Naim; Narro, Martha L.; Piel, William H.; Mckay, Sheldon J.; Lowry, Sonya; Freeland, Chris; Peet, Robert K.; Enquist, Brian J. (BioMed Central, 2013-01-16)
    The digitization of biodiversity data is leading to the widespread application of taxon names that are superfluous, ambiguous or incorrect, resulting in mismatched records and inflated species numbers. The ultimate ...
