This fileset includes a research paper describing reproductive maturation in geoduck clams with 200 images of gonadal histological sections and associated datasheets.

Female Staging Pictures
* Images of each histology slide of female geoduck tissue samples taken with iPhone 5 camera
* Labeling: fG##_s#_##x.jpg
   * f - female
   * G## - geoduck number
   * s# - reproductive maturation stage
   * ##x - magnification 


Male Staging Pictures
* Images of each histology slide of male geoduck tissue samples taken with iPhone 5 camera
* Labeling: mG##_s#_##x.jpg
   * m - male
   * G## - geoduck number
   * s# - reproductive maturation stage
   * ##x - magnification

Data Spreadsheets
* Female ReproMaturation Staging (.xlsx): lists each female geoduck (labeled Geo_##) under each reproductive maturation stage with the maturation parameters - average oocyte size (µ) and average follicle size (µ)
* Male ReproMaturation Staging (.xlsx): lists each male geoduck (labeled Geo_##) under each reproductive maturation stage with the maturation parameters - percent composition of spermatids in acini and percent coverage of tissue sample of acini
* Geoduck Data_MASTERSHEET: lists all data collected: sampling date, geoduck label, geoduck gender, reproductive maturation stage, weight prior to dissection (g), shell length (mm), gross examination notes, and whether hemolymph was sampled successfully
