Description: This proposal is a continuation of strategic research/work by the taxonomy group and includes the following tasks. It also focuses on developing tools to improve baseline data quality for other Divisional research projects. " Managing and updating of fish component of the CAAB database. Without attention this database will become outdated creating problems for users within and outside the Division. " Seeding funding to develop a tool facilitating species identification and faunal delineation. A prototype will be developed that can be used to secure funds from FRDC for further development and population of the databases around which the tools are developed. " Naming new species discovered during the production of Sharks and Rays of Australia. Eliminating plagiarism by the unscrupulous and making these names available for a variety of user groups. Conservation, and fishery research and management, is being hampered without this information. " Completion of manuscripts on the taxonomy of Australasian fishes discovered during CMR research. Drafts have already been prepared but these need to be completed and submitted. " Addressing serious staff shortages in early 2005 due to long-term leave.
