Sipuncula LifeDesk

Last updated about 1 year ago

Given the lack of specialists with knowledge on this group of marine invertebrates and the difficulty in finding specific bibliographic material, it is important to provide taxonomic resources for minor-phyla such as Sipuncula. The small size of the phylum Sipuncula gives us the opportunity to provide information on all species in this phylum. The EOL website will provide the first online database assembling pictures of sipunculan worms combined with information on systematics, biology and evolution. EOL species pages would allow immediate and free access of this information for students and researchers interested in Sipuncula, helping them with identifications and relevant information.
