These pages are under construction and are being used to break down the data on Habitats and Species Inter-relationships needed for the Future Modules. They are in their very early stages at present, but need to be present for us to ascertain their relationship to other data types.

  • Further information held on each Biome to include anatomical and physiological attributes.
  • Further subdivision to specify detailed habitat types by tissue type (e.g. Epithelial / Lymphoid etc.)
  • Detailed Habitat types to specify Acid-Base parameters / Temperature / Antibody functionality / which species present, and if predatory on other species, cell / tissue damaging (e.g. protozoa/bacteria etc)
