WoRMS grows as more experts from all over the world contribute
Added on 2009-01-28 16:49:13 by Mark J. Costello

As of today 142 taxonomists from 92 institutions in 26 countries are contributing data to WoRMS (list below). The main goal in 2009 for the new WoRMS Steering Committee will be to fill the few gaps in the WoRMS Editorial board. I welcome suggestions for editors, whether to cover a taxon globally or regionally, and whether they provide nomenclatural, distribution images, or other information on species. In time, I expect our editors leading large taxa will have an increasing number of Associate Editors which they coordinate, as this will share the work of keeping the database up to date.

This is the list of institutions involved in WoRMS.
