Specimens tab - My Manager

All the features and tools found here are used the same way in other tabs of My Manager. All Specimens contributed/submitted to Morphbank will be seen in this tab.

All provider-contributed Specimen data is displayed in the Specimen tab. A casual browser sees how many images & annotations are present for each specimen. Unique to this tab and the Taxa tab, a user may create an Operational Taxonomic Unit (OTU) Collection. By collecting a specimen record or records and adding a taxon name / names to that Morphbank collection, a user can create / illustrate a description of a new taxonomic grouping or possible new classification, i.e. an OTU.

Path to the Specimens tab after login is Header Menu > Browse > Specimen. Or, click Browse in the Header, then click on the Specimen tab.
