Biodiversity Conservation Information System BCIS is a global partnership of a dozen conservation organisations who collectively aim to provide access to the most current knowledge about Biodiversity - location, distribution, trends and protective measures. Large parts of the system are still under development however.
BIOSIS Many useful taxonomically based zoological information including an abstract search and list of biologists.
Species Survival Commission Contains details of the many taxonomically based specialist groups (e.g.SSC Cat Specialist Group) who collectively publish the extremely useful series of 'status survey and action plan' documents for different species groups.
World Conservation Monitoring Centre Highly recommended for a range of information resources concerning the status and conservation of the world's biodiversity, including threatened species lists and protected area information. Also available is The Biodiversity Map Library, an on-line GIS based system giving easy access to the status and distribution of biodiversity world-wide. The National Biodiversity Profiles have a section focusing on potential for international Cupertino towards conservation needs in the selected countries
