BISMaL, a new biological database online at JAMSTEC's Global Oceanographic Data Center

JAMSTEC has just launched a new database, Biological Information System for Marine Life (BISMaL), online at the Global Oceanographic Data Center (GODAC):
You can search marine species including those from deep-sea vents and seeps around the Japan Islands and browse photographs, descriptions on morphology/ecology, videos, sample records, and references of each species.
In addition, the GODAC website links to:
- JAMSTEC cruise reports,
- GANSEKI: Deep Sea Floor Rock Sample Database, and
- Deep-sea Video Database featuring video from vehicles including Shinkai 6500 and HYPER-DOLPHIN.
