Ostracods are represented in a number of collections of potential use for ocean acidification research:
The Discovery collections originate from a number of different expeditions that took place from 1901-1999. The collection of pteropods may be of particular importance for ocean acidification research, and there are a wide variety of other marine specimens as well as ocean bottom deposits and residues.

Scientists on the 1872-76 HMS Challenger expedition collected a vast amount of natural history material from around the globe, which is accompanied by extensive taxonomic and summary reports. Get information about the Challenger collections housed at the Natural History Museum.
See a summary of what can be found in the Dry Invertebrate Store.
The collections at these institutions were surveyed for the UK Ocean Acidification Research Programme.
