Robin Whatley's type and figured ostracods at the NHM

Giles Miller
This is a list of papers on ostracods authored by Prof. Robin Whatley that contain reference to specimens housed at the Natural History Museum. The list was compiled as preparation for a talk by Giles Miller at the Geological Society on Monday 30th Jan 2017 at a meeting to commemorate the life and works of Robin Whatley. The list is by no means complete and is based mainly on data associated with the Aberystwyth University...

Metrosideros-feeding psyllids of the Hawaiian Islands

Diana Percy
Abstract of publication: The Hawaiian psyllids (Psylloidea, Triozidae) feeding on Metrosideros (Myrtaceae) constitute a remarkable radiation of more than 35 species. This monophyletic group has diversified on a single, highly polymorphic host plant species, Metrosideros polymorpha. Eleven Metrosideros-feeding species included in the Insects of Hawaii by Zimmerman are redescribed, and an additional 25 new species are described. Contrary to previous classifications that placed the Metrosideros-feeders in two genera, Trioza Foerster, 1848 and Kuwayama Crawford, 1911,...

Former Aberystwyth microfossil collection

A catalogue of information about discrete collections within the Former Aberystwyth University Micropalaeontology Collection, now housed the Natural History Museum.\r\n\r\nThe catalogue is designed for **university academics** and **industrial micropalaeontologists** interested in post-Palaeozoic ostracods and foraminifera.\r\n\r\nCollection records generally include:\r\n\r\n* the title of the study that produced the collection\r\n* information about the collector \r\n* any associated documentation (e.g. thesis, record file or publications) held at the Museum.\r\n* brief geological ages based on the Gradstein et al. (1996)...

Concatenated alignments of CO1, ND1 and 16S rRNA for the land snail Corilla.

D.C. Raheem
Four concatenated alignment (including indels) of three mitochondrial genes (CO1, ND1 and 16S rRNA) for the Sri Lankan land snail Corilla (Pulmonata: Corillidae). See: Raheem, D.C. et al. (2017) Exploring the shell-based taxonomy of the Sri Lankan land snail Corilla H. and A. Adams, 1855 (Pulmonata: Corillidae) using mitochondrial DNA, Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, 107: 609-618. All datasets aligned using MAFFT v. 7 (Katoh and Standley, 2013, Molecular Biology and Evolution, 30, 772-780).

Data from 'Meik et al. 2018 - Journal of Natural History'

Sarah Schaack Jesse M. Meik
We describe two diminutive species of rattlesnakes (Genus _Crotalus_) from small nearshore islands off the coast of Baja California in the western Gulf of California, Mexico. In order to test the hypothesis that some island populations represent cohesive species entities, we applied linear discriminant analysis and uniform validation procedures to multiple classes of intrinsic trait data. By using previously recognised species to establish a threshold for species recognition, we found that assignment of specimens to...

The data set comprises the original data files and scripts used to generate analyses in the publication\r\nAubriot X, Knapp S, Syfert MM, Poczai P, Buerki S (2018) Shedding new light on the origin and spread of the brinjal eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) and its wild relatives. American Journal of Botany XX: xxx-xxx\r\n\r\n\r\nABSTRACT\r\n\r\nPREMISE OF THE STUDY: While brinjal eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) is the second most important solanaceaous fruit crop, we lack firm knowledge of its...

Phthiraptera collection

E. Louise Allan Olha Shchedrina
The Phthiraptera collection comprises the records of all the slide-mounted parasitic lice material at the Natural History Museum, London. It includes the main collection and the four discrete historical collections of Richard Balter, Henry Denny, Edouard Piaget and Seinosuke Uchida.\r\n\r\nThe Phthiraptera collection was digitised to refine our slide digitisation workflow and to provide images for metadata extraction using machine learning.\r\n\r\nEach specimen record has been published with an image capturing both the specimen and its associated...

Former British Petroleum microfossil database

The database represents the microfossil well-run collection resulting from British Petroleum's exploration activities since the 1950s. It holds details of material from over 3,500 individual well runs. \r\n\r\nThe main purpose of the database is to allow researchers to identify material of interest, based on its geographical location.\r\n\r\nPlease note that in some cases the data is sparse. Records are updated regularly when data become available.
