This dynamic, working classification of the genus Gymnodinium contains all Gymnodinium names and organizes them into proper reconciliation groups. It was created for the purpose of automated names reconciliation by the Global Names Project. The classification originated in http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0044015 and has been improved since publication. The current data set can be found at https://github.com/diatomsRcool/gymnodiniales. The data set itself can be cited as 10.5281/zenodo.437529
A compilation based on publications concerning taxonomy, nomenclature, and geographic distribution of extant hexacorallians - members of cnidarian orders Actiniaria (sea anemones in the strict sense), Antipatharia (black corals), Ceriantharia (tube anemones), Corallimorpharia (sea anemones in the loose sense), Ptychodactiaria (sea anemones in the loose sense), Scleractinia (hard or stony corals), and Zoanthidea (sea anemones in the loose sense).
The Recent or extant taxa from the World Ostracoda Database-World Register of Marine Species includes mostly marine species, and was data-mined from thousands of publications (see sources in WoRMS). Concerning the Recent non-marine Ostracoda, very few of the 2,000 species and approximately 200 genera of are included in the present data, because they have already been compiled by Martens et al. (2007). Concerning the high level classification (i.e., down to family level), we follow different authors. The Recent Podocopa classification mostly follows Horne et al. (2002), with two exceptions. First, we include Platycopida within the subclass Platycopa, while Horne et al. (2002) place it withi…
The Paleobiology Database (PaleoBioDB) is a non-governmental, non-profit public resource for paleontological data. It has been organized and operated by a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional, international group of paleobiological researchers. Its purpose is to provide global, collection-based occurrence and taxonomic data for organisms of all geological ages, as well data services to allow easy access to data for independent development of analytical tools, visualization software, and applications of all types. The Database’s broader goal is to encourage and enable data-driven collaborative efforts that address large-scale paleobiological questions.
The Lygaeoidea Species File database contains taxonomic and other information about all the seed bugs of the world, both living and fossil. <p>Note: This online catalog is under continual development as more specimen data and other information are added.
This database covers all global extant and fossil species of Nepticuloidea. It is based on the scratchpad Nepticuloidea.info, and the fixed publication <i>Nieukerken EJ van, Doorenweerd C, Hoare RJB, Davis DR (2016). Revised classification and catalogue of global Nepticulidae and Opostegidae (Lepidoptera: Nepticuloidea). ZooKeys 628: 65-246.</i> <a href="https://doi.org/10.3897/zookeys.628.9799" target="_blank">doi: 10.3897/zookeys.628.9799</a>, all published on October 31st, 2016. The database covers all current valid names, and all known synonyms, various combinations and synonymic infra-subspecific names. The publication also provides biogeogra…
The Planetary Biodiversity Inventory (PBI) for Plant Bugs provides a resource about the global plant bug subfamilies Orthotylinae and Phylinae (Insecta: Heteroptera: Miridae) to systematists, insect ecologists, conservation biologists, the general public, and students via the Internet. The database was made possible with the generous support from the National Science Foundation in 2003-2011.
The Chrysididae Species File is a taxonomic database of the Chrysidid subfamilies Amiseginae and Loboscelidiinae. These understudied wasps are believed to be obligate egg-parasitoids of stick insects (see Phasmida Species File). The goal of this database is to provide a central point for information about these wasps, including their host relationships which are at present poorly understood. It is hoped that an up-to-date and centralised database will facilitate studies on these enigmatic insects, both by hymenopterists and phasmatologists.
Entiminae is the largest subfamily of weevils, small to medium sized phyllophagous weevils with deciduous mandibular process and mostly root-feeding larva. The checklist was generated from the 3i database which provides information on all species, including, distributional and host plant data, and literature references. 3i (Internet-accessible Interactive Identification) is a set of software tools for creating on-line identification keys, taxonomic databases, and virtual taxonomic revisions.
WorldFerns and WorldPlants are synonymic checklists of the vascular plants of the world (including ferns and lycophytes). The data set has been compiled over the last 20 years by starting from the basic data of the Kew Index and the Index Filicum. These names (roughly 1 million) have been cross-checked against local floras, checklists and treatments. In the current status about 90% of the species names have been verified, and distribution data are available for about 80% of the countries (incomplete only for parts of tropical Africa and Brazil).
This global marine species list is part of the World Register of Marine Species database, which aims to provide the most authoritative list of names of all marine species globally. Data have been contributed to the Catalogue of Life via the WoRMS, hosted by the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ).
The intention of The Scorpion Files is to present an updated list of all extant scorpion species and the current situation in scorpion taxonomy. The Scorpion Files' family and species lists reflect the most recent published works, and not necessarily which system the editor believes is correct. The list does not contain synonymy yet. Data have been harvested by Eli Agbayani (Encyclopedia of Life) from the original website.
The World List of Cycads is a working list of known cycad species names with the primary goal of providing reliable information on the taxonomy of cycads for use by researchers, conservation planners, and others. It is developed in close collaboration with world's foremost cycad experts and published under the auspices of the IUCN's Cycad Specialist Group. The printed edition is published in the proceedings of the International Conference of Cycad Biology, which is held every three years.
Includes all currently accepted names in Acacia s.l. together with commonly used synonyms (mostly basionyms). Full synonymy is not included yet. Distribution information is provided, but apart from Australia, these data are of a general nature.
The Phasmida Species File is a taxonomic database of the world's Phasmida (stick and leaf insects, known as walking sticks and walking leaves in the U.S.). It contains full synonymic and taxonomic information for c. 3,050 valid species. There are c. 27,600 citations to c. 2500 references, also c. 6,200 specimen records and more than 11,500 images of over two thirds of valid species. The database is being continually updated by the author (Paul Brock), making it user friendly to taxonomists and rearers.
WorldPlants and WorldFerns are synonymic checklists of the vascular plants of the world (including ferns and lycophytes). The data set has been compiled over the last 20 years by starting from the basic data of the Kew Index and the Index Filicum. These names (roughly 1 million) have been cross-checked against local floras, checklists and treatments. In the current status about 90% of the species names have been verified, and distribution data are available for about 90% of the countries (incomplete only for some groups in Mexico, Thailand, India, Indonesia and some smaller countries). Magnus Lidén (Uppsala University, Sweden) has revised a checklist of subfamily Fumarioideae (Pa…
Psyl'list is an online database dedicated to Jumping Plant-Lice (Insecta, Hemiptera, Psylloidea). The aim of this ongoing project is primarily to make up the absence of world catalogues for Psylloidea, in organizing taxonomic data and providing easy access to the published taxonomic data already available, but scattered in literature. In the future, information about Psylloidea morphology, host-plants and biogeography, as well as linked molecular data, will be added.
Eumycetozoa.com is an on-line taxonomic checklist and nomenclatural information system of the Eumycetozoans of the world (Myxomycetes, Dictyostelids and Protostelids). It provides information on 1,111 species, 2,260 synonyms and 949 invalid or doubtful names employed in this group. The database can be searched by different ranks; it can show the history of the name, all synonyms of the species, taxonomic views in different publications, or the single view of the Eumycetozoa.com editors.
