Welcome to Diatoms Online

This website is dedicated to the microscopic world of Diatoms. It aims to provide a venue for informal exchange and sharing of information about diatom collections (and auxiliary information to these collections) as well as act as a curatorial and taxonomic tool. 

The site will be developed in packages focusing on key collections housed at the Natural History Museum in London. This resource is managed by Museum curators with input from the researcher/s but greatly relies on the invaluable contribution made by our volunteers.

Please note, that this is not a static website but a living, breathing work in progress and we will be continually adding/amending the information as work progresses and our story develops.
