Title: NMITA - Neogene Marine Biota of Tropical America
Title abbreviated: NMITA
Creator: University of Iowa <Iowa City, Iowa> / Department of Geoscience
Abstract: Neogene Marine Biota of Tropical America (NMITA) is an online biotic database containing images and data for taxa used in analyses of Tropical American biodiversity over the past 25 million years. The NMITA WWW Site contains images and information on taxa collected as part of two large multi-taxa fossil sampling programs: (1) the Panama Paleontology Project (PPP) coordinated by the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama; (2) the Neogene Paleontology of the northern Dominican Republic (DR) project coordinated by the Natural History Museum in Basel, Switzerland. NMITA is designed for use in research and education in systematics and evolutionary paleontology. Partial information is currently available for bryozoans, corals (zooxanthellate and azooxanthellate), molluscs (gastropods and bivalves), ostracodes, and fish.
