The Magnitude of Global Marine Species Diversity
The first register of the marine species of the world is compiled and it is estimated that between one-third and two-thirds of marine species may be undescribed, and previous estimates of there being well over one million marine species appear highly unlikely. Expand
A Higher Level Classification of All Living Organisms
We present a consensus classification of life to embrace the more than 1.6 million species already provided by more than 3,000 taxonomists’ expert opinions in a unified and coherent, hierarchicallyExpand
Atlas of marine-fouling bryozoa of New Zealand ports and harbours
The biology of bryozoan larvae at the time of settlement and metamorphosis, the most critical and susceptible phase in marine fouling, as well as the invasive strategies of marine-fouling species are discussed. Expand
Cheilostomatous Bryozoa from Vanuatu
The present account of some Bryozoa from Vanuatu is the first study of reef-flat species from the eastern Coral Sea, and a total of 92 species are described, including a new family, three new genera and 20 new species. Expand
Microarchitecture and function of the lophophore in the bryozoan Cryptosula pallasiana
The architecture and function of the lophophore of the marine bryozoan Cryptosula pallasiana (Moll) are described, including some new features not previously discovered in bryozoans. The nature ofExpand
Marine Biodiversity of Aotearoa New Zealand
Marine information sources, published literature, and reports were scrutinized to give the results summarized here for the first time (current to 2010), including data on endemism and invasive species. Expand
Global Coordination and Standardisation in Marine Biodiversity through the World Register of Marine Species (WoRMS) and Related Databases
The scale of the problems with species names, synonyms, and their classification is illustrated, and how WoRMS publishes online quality assured information on marine species is described to show increased taxonomic efficiency and quality control in marine biodiversity research and management.

Phylum Bryozoa Ehrenberg, 1831. In : Zhang, Z.-Q. (Ed.) Animal Biodiversity: An Outline of Higher-level Classification and Survey of Taxonomic Richness (Addenda 2013)
This paper is an invited contribution to the Zootaxa series ‘Animal biodiversity: An outline of higher-level classification and survey of taxonomic richness’ and the species numbers given here are more or less derived from the WoRMS. Expand
Skeletal mineralogy of bryozoans: Taxonomic and temporal patterns
Skeletal carbonate mineralogy of 1183 specimens of marine bryozoans from the literature was examined for phylogenetic patterns in order to elucidate the effects of bryozoan mineralogy on geochemicalExpand
