Harold W. Manter Laboratory of Parasitology Collection (HWML) Parasite Collection (Arctos)
The Harold W. Manter Laboratory of Parasitology (HWML) was established 29 March 1971 at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln as a new division in the University of Nebraska State Museum (UNSM). The founding core of the collection was based on Dr. Manter's research collection of parasitic trematodes of oceanic fishes. In 1981 the HWML was designated as one of three National Resource Centers for Parasitology and many students associated with the lab have been trained in systematics as well as other aspects of parasitology. Three Henry Baldwin Ward Medalists (the highest annual award that is given by the American Society of Parasitologists) were students in Parasitology and in the lab while Professor Mary Hanson Pritchard directed the laboratory (Professor Pritchard is now Curator Emeritus). In the past 5 years, more than 150 publications have resulted from research both in the HWML and from specimens loaned from, or deposited into, the HWML as types or vouchers. On an annual basis we process more than 20 outgoing loans per year and we receive thousands of specimens into the collection from researchers world-wide for archiving and safe storage of valuable voucher specimens.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 60,965 records.
1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
