ZooBank

Description

This checklist covers all scientific names from all nomenclatural acts published in ZooBank. The dataset was statically generated on the 14th January 2017 from an DwC complient ZooBank database export and used as is. Work on publishing ZooBank in regular intervals using an IPT is under way and will replace this version eventually.

ZooBank provides an authoritative online, open-access, community-generated registry for zoological nomenclature, as a service to taxonomists, biologists, and the global biodiversity informatics community. It is the Official Register of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN). ZooBank contains published usages of scientific names for animals, which represent nomenclatural acts as governed by the ICZN Code of Nomenclature. Most of these acts are ‘original descriptions’ of new scientific names for animals, but other acts may include emendations, lectotypifications, and other acts as governed by the ICZN Code.
