Vouchering and Archiving

Specimens examined and illustrated for morphological analysis will be labelled as vouchers and noted as such in the specimen database, as will tissue samples stored in AMCC. Morphological and genetic data will be centralized on the AMNH server, allowing data exchange between project participants and dissemination of results. Sequences will be submitted to GenBank (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/), morphological data and images to the nascent MorphBank database (http://www.morphbank.net), and trees to the Tree of Life (http://www.tolweb.org/) and Tree Base (http://www.treebase.org) databases.
