Abstract

Linnaeus II is an innovative multifunctional research tool for systematists and biodiversity researchers, facilitating biodiversity documentation and species identification. Linnaeus II was developed by ETI BioInformatics at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The software package, available for both Windows and Mac OS X, allows the creation of taxonomic databases, optimizes the construction of easy-to-use identification keys, expedites the display and comparison of distribution patterns, and promotes the use of taxonomic data for biodiversity studies. The software can also be used to publish completed information systems on CD-ROM / DVD-ROM or make them available on the Web.
