Sperm morphology of 264 songbird species
Sperm morphology for 125 Afrotropical and 139 Northern temperate species of songbirds, utilized in comparative analyses in the paper “Sperm size variation among Afrotropical songbirds as adaptations to the tropical environment” by Omotoriogun et al., 2020. The value in otherCatalogNumbers is an ID number for an internal Sperm Morhology Database and can be used to retrieve the original measurements. Note that in order to download the measurements themselves the source archive must be downloaded from the IPT https://ipt.gbif.no/archive.do?r=sperm-morphology-songbirds.
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 2,937 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.
