PLANKTON*NET @ AWI The PLANKTON*NET data provider at the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research is an open access repository for plankton-related information. It covers all types of phytoplankton and zooplankton from marine and freshwater areas. PLANKTON*NET's greatest strength is its comprehensiveness as for the different taxa image information as well as taxonomic descriptions can be archived. PLANKTON*NET also contains a glossary with accompanying images to illustrate the term definitions.
- PLANKTON*NET @ Roscoff The PLANKTON*NET data provider at the Station Biologique at Roscoff (France) of phytoplankton (marine and estuarine) species of Normandy (English Channel), and of Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) images of phytoplankton of the Atlantic Ocean, South Brittany.
