The cnidarians collection (IK) of the *Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle* (MNHN - Paris)
The collection of **cnidarians**, comprising about 80 000 lots, combines old specimens from all oceans. Two CRLFs follow this word: These specimens are preserved in either alcohol, dry, as slides, or in a separate herbaria for some hydroids and sea fans. One CRLF follows this word: The oldest specimens (1706-1707) of Hydroids and Octocorallia of the collection are preserved in herbaria made by Sébastien Vaillant. A new paragraph follows this word:
The story is revealed on the label and recalls the big names such as a list made with CRLFs follows: Peron and Lesueur; Savigny; Jean-Baptiste Lamarck; Quoy and Gaimard; Valenciennes; and H. Milne-Edwards and Haime. Generations of scientists have enriched the collection, thanks to naturalist expeditions like that of Egypt (1800-1804), Baudin on the western coast of Australia, the Astrolabe (1837-1840), and the two French Antarctic expeditions in early twentieth century. New paragraph.
For forty years, various campaigns in the
- Atlantic (Thalassa, Biogas ...),
- the sub-Antarctic (on the Marion Dufresne),
- the Indo-Pacific (program MUSORSTOM / Deep-Sea Benthos),
- and the great expeditions (Santo, Vanuatu 2006, Guadeloupe 2012) made for the "Planet revisited" program,

The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 25,685 records.
4 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
