A Global Information System on Fish. FishBase on the web contains information on practically all fish species known to science. (31,000 species, 47,000 pictures, 42,500 references).
It is supported by a consortium of seven research institutions, the F.A.O. and the European Commission.


Web site provided by the American Society for Microbiology, which is the largest single life science society, composed of over 42,000 scientists and health professionals.
Its mission is to promote research and training in the microbiological sciences and to assist communication between scientists, policy makers and the public to improve health and the environment.


l Taxonomic Information Systems

Species 2000 has the objective of enumerating all known species of organisms on Earth (animals, plants, fungi and microbes) as the baseline dataset for studies of global biodiversity.

Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS).
Authoritative taxonomic information on plants, animals, fungi and microbes of North America and the world. ITIS is a partnership of U.S., Canadian and Mexican agencies; other organisations and taxonomic specialists. ITIS is also a partner of Species 2000 and the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF).
