This program, Marine Planarians of the World™, is primarily based on the taxonomic section of "A Monograph of the Marine Triclads" by R. Sluys. (A. A. Balkema, Rotterdam & Brookfield, 1989, XII + 463 pp). A. A. Balkema Publishers is thanked for granting permission to ETI to distribute this information through electronic means.
In some cases the taxonomic information from the monographic study was updated, corrected, or supplemented with more recent data. The IdentifyIt section for Marine Planarians of the World™ was specially constructed for the present program and has not been available previously in either printed or electronic format.
The scientific data for this program has been digitized and updated by the author of the above-mentioned monograph, Dr. Ronald Sluys.
