Description:

An international endeavor, the Species 2000 project aims to enumerate "all known species of plants, animals, fungi and microbes on Earth as the baseline dataset for studies of global biodiversity." Though an ambitious task and still incomplete, parts of Species 2000 are functional; the current databases (bacteria, legumes, plant fossils, corals, fishes) may be searched by major group of organism or scientific name. Typical returns include scientific and vernacular names, number of subspecies, geographical records, habitats, descriptors, uses, literature references, and/or other fields. Also at the homepage are links to the project's scientific and technical teams, as well as links to mirror sites.
