NeMys Editor Workshop 2018

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

From September 5th until September 7th, 2018 a NeMys Editor Workshop will be organised at the Marine Biology Research Group of Ghent University.

NeMys is an online tool to verify checklists of valid nematode species, its authority and distribution, to look into the available literature and also to identify some genera and species. NeMys is integrated into the World register of Marine Species (WoRMS) hosted at the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ), operated by an international team of taxonomists editors and the WoRMS data management team. Over the last 20 years NeMys has helped many marine nematologists, providing the latest classification, general information and literature on Taxonomy and Ecology of marine free-living nematodes. LifeWatch is promoting this second workshop with the editors, where new tasks will be indicated/created to address the gaps, the non-marine nematodes will be introduced and more species will be aggregated to the system.
