Thanks to many hands the World Register for Marine Species is becoming more complete 2017-02-10 09:25:44 The World register for marine species (WoRMS) aspires to contain all marine species ever described worldwide in one list. With the financial assistance of the project LifeWatch we were able to organize several data grants, meetings and workshops for experts in the course of 2016 designed to further improve this register and continue to complete it. The result?
