Calcifying plankton are amongst the most vulnerable organisms to imminent ocean changes, including ocean acidification and ocean warming. As a considerable part of the ocean food web, it is important to understand how calcifying plankton will be affected by these changes. However, responses to environmental changes are often species-specific, so it is essential to first understand the taxonomy and distribution of a plankton group, before the effects environmental change can be investigated. The Shelled Heteropod Identification Portal (SHIP) is part of on-going research into shelled heteropods (atlantids) carried out in principal by Dr Deborah Wall-Palmer. The research uses a wide range of in
