A genomic voucher collection of UK freshwater macroinvertebrates

Welcome to FreshBase

This site aims to be a central resource for the UK freshwater invertebrate fauna and their associated genomic data, based on the reference collection held at the Natural History Museum, London. More info on the project can be found on the About page. A list of all UK invertebrate species can be found on the Macroinvertebrates page.

The species list is built on the UK Checklist of freshwater species (Gunn et al. 2018) with higher taxonomy provided by the UK Species Inventory, hosted by the Natural History Museum.

Information on the current status of the voucher collection can be found on the Voucher Collection page.
