Atlas of Living AustraliaThe Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) project is building a biodiversity information platform to provide scientists and others with the information they need now and in decades to come. The ALA is a unique five-year partnership between the CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency; the Australian Government and Australian museums, herbaria and other biological collections. It is a work in progress. Source: ALA website
Catalogue of LifeThe most complete authoritative list of the world's species - maintained by hundreds of global taxonomists
Index Nominum GenericorumA compilation of generic names published for organisms covered by the ICN: International Code of Nomenclature for Algae, Fungi, and Plants.
Index to Organism Names (ION)ION contains the organism names related data gathered from the scientific literature for Thomson Reuters' Zoological Record® database. Viruses, bacteria and plant names are added from other Thomson Reuters databases such as BIOSIS Previews®.
International Plant Names IndexThe International Plant Names Index (IPNI) is (the official) database of the names and associated basic bibliographical details of seed plants, ferns and lycophytes. Its goal is to eliminate the need for repeated reference to primary sources for basic bibliographic information about plant names. The data are freely available and are gradually being standardized and checked. IPNI is a dynamic resource, depending on direct contributions by all members of the botanical community.

The surveys commenced in 1946 and were conducted by teams of scientists and technicians working together in the field and laboratory. The final report in the series was published in 1977. The CSIRO´s Land Research Series delivered 39 reports. Thirty-six are reports from surveys of the land resources of parts of Australia and Papua New Guinea. The other three are explanatory notes on maps covering the whole area of Papua New Guinea, largely compiled from the survey reports
