    "In 2004, a new plankton database effort began, incorporating over ten years of plankton data management experience and user feedback into designing and building a new online data system designed specifically for plankton data and plankton scientists. The Coastal & Oceanic Plankton Ecology, Production & Observation Database (COPEPOD) now contains the entire reprocessed plankton content of O'Brien et al. (2002), the significant amounts of new plankton data presented in COPEPOD-2005 (O'Brien 2005) and new data added since 2005. COPEPOD also represents a new approach to providing data access and investigator acknowledgement in a global-scale database. This new approach focuses on the individual data sets, highlighting each with a full summary of the exact content, sampling methods, and investigators associated with those data. By packaging these individual sets into data compilations and data products, a user can work at variety of local, regional, or global scales"--Introduction.
