…from the Echinodermata. Chris Mah has heard my call and unleashed the World Asteroidea Database. This will definitely make roll call easier when I assemble the troops to overtake the world.
Chris has done a terrific job and taxonomic databases such as this not only are the future of science but allow the addressing of several questions not allowable before. Our wish list for the future of WAD includes body size information, biogeographic data, and of course funding for Chris to continue on.
