New online searchable pictorial database

By Michael Stephenson

Abstract

A new online searchable pictorial database have been created, based on the ‘Bernard\ud Owens Collection’ of single grain mount palynological slides which are curated at theBritish\ud Geological Survey (BGS). This is part of the BGS‘Taxonomy Online’ project.\ud The database is available at: http://www.bgs.ac.uk/taxonomy/spores/home.html\ud The aim of ‘Taxonomy Online’ is to use the internet as a forum to illustrate fossil specimens\ud held in the collections of the BGS, and to outline their taxonomic and biostratigraphical\ud importance. As such, these web-based publications supplement but do not replace traditional\ud hardcopy palaeontological publications but allow easy access to illustrations of\ud specimens, descriptions, and to information about stratigraphic distribution
