A list of all Taxa in the database, showing which of the ten regions each has occurred in.
Both tables (Phytoplankton Species List and Zooplankton Species List) are sorted by the "Species Name". To change the sorting by the region (e.g. to see all species, found in the Aleutian Shelf region, at the top/bottom of the "Aleutian Shelf" column), please click on the Region Name (e.g. "Aleutian Shelf" link).
