The 8th Edition of A Taxonomic Listing of Benthic Macro- and Megainvertebrates from Infaunal and Epibenthic Monitoring Programs in the Southern California Bight is now available. It is in searchable PDF format. This edition is expected to remain available until it is superceded by the fully online species database later this year. NOTE: for a brief time on July 1–2, 2013 there was a copy of Edition 8 posted here with a minor omission (one reference). The current copy supercedes that initial posting. No other non-typographic changes were made between copies.
The meeting will be a workshop format similar to the recent Trawl FID workshops. Taxonomists working with members of the Miscellaneous Phyla should bring provisional species, specimens that require confirmation, or specimens with which they don’t even know where to start. All attendees are welcome to bring digital photos/presentations to share. The purpose is to inter calibrate our identifications ahead of data submission as much as possible. Late trawl-FIDs samples are also welcome.
