Well folks it is finally ready!
The 2nd edition of the "Literature on the Polychaeta (Annelida)" by Linda
A. Ward and Kristian Fauchald is now available on the WEB at
The data files are available in Papyrus format or as ASCII delimited text
Our thanks to Geoff Read for taking our files and doing the necessary
conversion of the README file to HTML and "zipping" our data files and
putting them on the WEB. Our thanks to the folks at the University of
Kansas for letting us put it on their WEB site.
We also want to thank Robin Wilson who took the time to convert our
original, poorly formatted, database file to Papyrus. This has helped to
standardize the format and helped tremendously with the editing.
Please keep in mind that this is a work in progress and still contains
messy records and probably even inaccurate data. If you use our
citations in your papers you still need to verify the data, such as volume
and page numbers or add in accents, etc. yourself. Only a tiny
percentage of the citations have been verified by us against the original
The 2nd edition will only be available for downloading from the WEB.
Due to budget and time constraints we do not plan on issuing a CD/ROM
or printed copy of the bibliography. The advantage with doing it this way
is that we will be able to issue yearly, or maybe bi-yearly, updates that
you can then download.
If you have any questions or run into problems please contact Linda at
