Description
ETI's World Biodiversity Database is a continuously growing taxonomic database and information system that aims at documenting all presently known species and to make this important biological information worldwide accessible. more

ETI, the Expert Center for Taxonomic Identification, is a not for profit foundation, dedicated to improve on a global scale the quantity, quality and accessibility of taxonomic information, based on an initiative of UNESCO. ETI's World Biodiversity Database is a continuously growing taxonomic database and information system that aims at documenting all presently known species and to make this important biological information worldwide accessible. The WBD is intended to increase understanding and to support a responsible use and to facilitate the management of the earths biodiversity resources. It is built as a joint effort of specialists worldwide who contribute basic taxonomic, ecological and biodiversity data to ETI to make this available in electronic form, both online in the WBD and in subsections on CD-ROM.
