The list is in HTML format but a link to an XML version (ZIP file) can be found at the bottom of the list.


How can I access my Country of Interest?

Each country has its own country code (ISO - usually two (2) characters). For example, Australia is au, United Kingdom (Great Britain and Ireland) is uk and Galapagos is ecga.

If you know the code for your country of interest, enter it in the box provided at the top left. Alternatively, you can select your country from the dropdown list, or, go to the map representing your region of the world and click on the country (this option is still under development).

There are 236 countries currently available.

The Information in the Databases

Unlike most websites the information on these sites is maintained by people such as yourself. Each database starts out as a basic list of species, with minimal information - common name, scientific name, and family. From there it is up to you to update and expand on the data. However, not just anybody can contribute data.

If you would like to be able to update data or modify the factual content of the database please apply from within the region you are interested in. Because this is essentially a peer maintained site we are always on the lookout for enthusiatic and knowledgable people. Your application will be assessed and you will be informed of our decision.

Countries for which Databases are available

The list of countries is slowly growing. The complete list can be found in the drop down box. At this time only Australia (our home base) has any significant data (if you would like to help develop one of the other countries let us know).

If you do not find your region of interest please let us know and we will create it.

Would you like to Contribute material?

We are always looking for material to include. If you would like to contribute articles, images, videos etc please contact us. Please consult our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page for details concerning what can be displayed and who owns what. You will find a link at the bottom of each page within the site.

Would you like to become an Administrator for one of the Sites?
