Selected higher taxon
- equivalent terrestrial examples - Coccinellidae for all beetles
Recording conspicuous species by visual methods
- method to be used by scuba divers in subtidal, while walking at low tide in the intertidal.
Number of species - ATBI
- All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory - identification of all species from restricted area, from viruses to whales. Practically not done before, several sites are having quite complete inventories.
