Finding Things in the North American Diatom Ecological Database (NADED)

The North American Diatom Ecological Database (NADED) contains information about algae counts made by the Phycology Section or its partners since the 1950's.  At present, there are ? algae samples, ? algae collection sites, and ? algae count events in the database.  Additionally, there are images and extensive information on thousands of freshwater diatoms and soft algae which have been detected in the algae count events.

Below are links to some of the web services which make the algae taxa, sample, site and count data in NADED available on the web. 

Counts

Sites:

  • If you have the ANSP site_id, you can view all site info by placing the site_id at the end of the URL
  • If you have the ANSP site code, you can view all site info by placing the site code at the end of the URL

 Images: For these, on the URL, change taxonomy_id=23 (full list) to taxonomy_id=21 (for 2007 list) if desired:

  • Image counts of undescribed taxa on the full list - added during 2009
  • Image counts of undescribed taxa on the full list - added since Jan 1, 2010
  • Image counts of undescribed diatoms on the full list - added since Jan 1, 2009
    • Note, this can be modified to see the same info for other lists too (i.e., change the 23 in the URL to 21 for ANSP-2007 or 26 for ANSP-2010)
