Description: The World Biodiversity Database, provided by ETI BioInformatics, seeks to document all presently known species (about 1.7 million) and to make this important biological information worldwide accessible. This continually growing database provides "taxonomic information, species names, synonyms, descriptions, illustrations and literature references, as well as online identification keys and interactive geographical information systems." The searchable database can be explored using an expandable tree of taxonomic kingdoms or by typing in a common or scientific name.
