Computerizing marine biota: a rational approach
MetadataShow full item record
Data on marine biota while being extensive are also patchy and scattered; thus making retrieval and dissemination of information time consuming. This emphasise the need for computerizing information on marine biota with the objective to collate various aspects like taxonomy, biology, ecology, biography, pollution and the bibliography. It would help in knowing endangered and extinct forms, extent and effect of pollution, systematics, biodiversity, environmental status and would help in the development and management of marine living resources for sustainable utilization. A methodology, towards computerizing various aspects of marine biota, is described and discussed here.
