Drøbak-collections

Latest version published by Natural History Museum, University of Oslo on Nov 28, 2019 Natural History Museum, University of Oslo

Spatial and temporal project data (EVENT DATA) from 637 marine sampling events. Marine benthic invertebrates in the Oslofjord were collected during the years 1951-1955. The sampling effort was organised from the Biological Station in Drøbak, University of Oslo. The sampling was carried out by Marit E. Christiansen and Bengt O. Christiansen.

This dataset is deliberately published WITHOUT OCCURRENCES. The collected invertebrate material was to be made available for revisions by specialists. It was further intended that the collections should form a core material for a series of publications on Nordic marine fauna named ‘Marine Invertebrates of Scandinavia (MIOS)’. Ten volumes were published, but the original idea of a series covering more than 40 systematic groups was never completed.

The collected material was deposited in the invertebrate collections of the Natural History Museum of the University of Oslo. Parts of the material has not yet been registered. Parts has been registered but still not been digitised (status per 2018). It will be published in GBIF as occurrence files which will be linked to these datasets using the corresponding eventID. So far, occurrence data of several polychaete families have been published: https://data.gbif.no/ipt/resource?r=polychaeta#

Data Records

The data in this sampling event 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 637 records.

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.

Title Mapping of marine benthic invertebrates in the Oslofjord and the Skagerrak: sampling data of museum collections from 1950–1955 and from recent investigations
Funding The sampling and the employment of Marit E. Christiansen and Bengt O. Christiansen (1951–55) were funded by the former Norwegian Council for Science and the Humanities. The geo- referencing and digitalization of sampling stations were funded by GBIF Norway (to Kristine Dobbe). We are indebted to the late Professor Christoffer Schander, University of Bergen, for organizing the Bioskag project. We thank Petter Baardsen, Institute of Marine Research, for locating the ship’s logbooks from R/V GM Dannevig, and Jon-Arne Sneli, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, for information on sampling gear. Katrine Kongshavn, University Museum of Bergen, assisted in preparing maps, and Christian Svindseth GBIF Norway helped with the GBIF repository. This study was in part funded by the Norwegian Taxonomy Initiative through the Norwegian Biodiversity Information Centre for the project ‘Polyskag: Polychaetes in coastal areas of the Skagerrak – from early natural history to current needs of knowledge’ (project number 70184216).
