Upcoming SCAMIT Meetings

Monday 17 November 2014 9:30–3:30
Sipuncula at SCCWRP.

Review the Ed 9 species list and update/edit the files currently in the website taxonomic tool box. In addition, members are asked to bring or submit prior additional tools not already in the toolbox and all images of sipunculid (live, dead, dissected) species.
At the annual meeting this past September, the Executive Committee identified two goals to improve and move forward with the Taxonomic Database Tool (TDT): 1) clean up the taxonomic tools in the website 2) gather species images by members for storage and linkage to the TDT. The November meeting will bite off a small chunk of that task as a lead in to other groups.
Contact Larry Lovell regarding remote attendance.
