Taxonomy and T Guide - Resources and Review

Database of descriptions, photographs, and classifications of the world's mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, sharks, bony fish, molluscs, arthropods, and echinoderms, searchable by common or scientific name. Some records also provide information on habitats, physical characteristics, food, reproductive habits, and geographic range.
Information about DELTA, a method for encoding taxonomic descriptions for computer processing. It can be used to produce natural
language descriptions, interactive or conventional keys, cladistic or phenetic classifications and information retrieval systems.
The official journal of the International Committee on Systematic Bacteriology of the International Union of Microbiological Societies. IJSB publishes articles concerning the systematics of bacteria, yeasts and yeast
like organisms, including taxonomy, nomenclature, identification, characterisation, and culture preservation. Published quarterly.
Provides online access to the Kew Record of Taxonomic Literature relating to Vascular Plants, supplied by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Contains references to all publications relating to the taxonomy of flowering plants, gymnosperms and ferns. Subscription required.
Annotated list of bacterial names, arranged alphabetically and chronologically, providing the official nomenclature of bacteria and the nomenclatural changes as cited in the Approved Lists of Bacterial Names and the International Journal of Systematic Bacteriology.
Systematic Biology is the quarterly journal of the Society of Systematic Biologists, offering abstracts of papers on theory, principles, and methods of systematics, as well as evolution, morphology, biogeography, palaeontology, genetics, and classification.
An index of plant species, animals, fungi and microbes found on Earth. Databases can be searched by name or type of organism.
Annual index to worldwide zoological literature, first published in 1864. It is available in print, compact disc and online formats, providing access to world literature via author name, taxon name or subject, geographical and palaeontological terms.
A taxonomic database of the Orthoptera of the world, with full synonymic and taxonomic information for a variety of species and genera (all taxa described prior to 1997) of the Tettigonioidea (katydids and haglids), Grylloidea (crickets), Tetrigoidea (pygmy grasshoppers), and Tridactyloidea (sand crickets), as well as images and sounds for many species. Also includes a searchable database of entomologists working on the Orthoptera.
A distributed Internet project containing information about phylogeny and biodiversity. The project is designed to contain information about the phylogenetic relationships and characteristics of organisms, to illustrate the diversity and unity of living organisms, and to link biological information available on the Internet in the form of a phylogenetic navigator. The project aims to provide a map to biological information to be used by researchers, teachers and students.
Access to the Tree Conservation Database, representing over 7000 tree species of global conservation concern. Searchable by family, genus, or species name, it provides taxonomic information, threatened status, country, selected references, and notes on ecology and economics.
Lecture material covering areas like protists, porifera, cnidaria, acoelomates etc. The course is taught at the Department of Evolution, Ecology, and Organismal Biology at the Ohio State University.
Database of species for the Iberian Peninsula and surrounding areas, organised by phylum and covering all species from porifera (sponges) to chordata (birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians). Available in English and Spanish, the checklist includes species name and relevant taxonomic information such as date and author.
Guide to the distribution and nature of the world's major biomes. Considers the structure, characteristic growth forms, and taxonomic affiliations of the vegetation, and major soil order(s). Also covers common adaptive characteristics of the fauna of the tundra, boreal forest, temperate broadleaf deciduous forest, tropical broadleaf evergreen forest, tropical savanna, temperate grasslands, desert scrub, and Mediterranean shrub biomes.
MSW contains the names of 4,629 currently recognised species of mammals, in a taxonomic hierarchy that includes Order, Family, Subfamily, and Genus. Data from the book by Wilson, D. E., and D. M. Reeder (eds), 1993.
Lecture notes, supplementary reading or exercises, and links to other sites or software from the course in evolution at New York University. Topics include Darwin, adaptation, evolutionary genetics, speciation, systematics and phylogeny, history of diversity and fossils, biogeography, origins of novelty, molecular evolution, coevolution, and human issues.
Descriptions of flowering plants grouped by family such as Aceraceae, Labiatae and Orchidaceae. Includes illustrations, habit, leaf form, anatomy, physiology and taxonomy.
Official international system of rules of nomenclature used by botanists in all countries, dealing with the terms which denote the ranks of taxonomic groups or units and the scientific names which are applied to the individual taxonomic groups of plants. Includes subject and scientific name indexes.
