It is possible to link some of the Challenger benthic invertebrates curated within taxonomic collections at the Natural History Museum with the residues and bulk samples from which they came.
Example of the search process recommended for ocean acidification researchers looking for particular taxa:
Thus, while the zoology slides of species will not be available for destructive analysis, the original bulk samples and residues that the specimens came from and, in theory, that contain more specimens, should be available for ocean acidification-related research.
Researchers interested in particular localities could directly search the OBD or residue databases for station numbers of interest.
