NANODe Synonomy Table

Below is a table of those species in NANODe version 1 that underwent reclassification in the past 25 years.  The  source of this information is Kempf, 1997 (see Taxonomic References).

        This table is designed to aid those unfamiliar with the ostracode taxonomic literature.  Many common species appear in the ecological, environmental, and geochemical literature under different names, particularly in papers published after 1980.  The NANODe database uses the most recent names available.  If you cannot find the species listed in a journal article in the alphabetical species list (see link to left), please check this Synonomy Table.  If you are aware of important reclassifications for a species in this table that are not shown here, we would like to hear from you, so that we may update the table in NANODe version 2.
