- Not all stations will have specimens associated with them. As more data is added to the site the number of stations that have specimens will increase. Keep checking back if you're looking for something in particular.
- Not all records have station numbers associated with them. HMS Challenger stopped at ports for a matter of days, weeks and sometimes even months which often were not assigned a station number. Some material was also collected on land and with some records we just don’t know which station the specimen came from.
- If you are interested in specimens from a particular area please search by 'place' in the standard search to retrieve results with and without station numbers.
