Each name in the following list of naturalists is linked to a corresponding capsule "chrono-biographical" sketch of that individual prepared by the authors. Coverage extends from approximately 1950 backward in time as far as the eighteenth century; figures from all over the world are included (though there is admittedly a decided Anglo-American bias). The target subject here is biogeography, but this being a broad field there are many persons on the list who are better known as climatologists, zoologists, botanists, ecologists, oceanographers, paleontologists, etc.--in other words, who made their main reputations in cognate disciplines.
The database "Seeds of Brazil" was created primarily to provide data of the gray literature ("gray literature"), ie the scientific literature with difficult access and limited disclosure as per examples: Annals of Congresses and Symposia, Papers, Dissertations and Theses. Currently, 1247 references are registered in "Seeds of Brazil." Perform queries on the bench "Seeds of Brazil."
The main purpose of BioStor is to find articles in the Biodiversity Heritage Library. BioStor provides tools for extracting, annotating, and visualising literature from the Biodiversity Heritage Library (and other sources).
BISON is an information system that allows users to access, explore, and download U.S. species occurrence data from participating data providers.
Europeana is a search platform to a collection of European digital libraries with digitised paintings, books, films and archives. The project was initiated by the European Commission.
A repository of full text documents produced by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations on forest management and conservation.
Global Plants contains the contributed collections of more than 300 herbaria from around the globe. There are nearly two million high-resolution type specimens currently in the Global Plants database, and this number will continue to grow. Researchers and students can also access reference works and primary sources—such as collectors’ correspondence and diaries, paintings, drawings, and photographs—contributed by partners.

The INCT - Virtual Herbarium of Flora and Fungi promotes free and open access to data, information, and tools available to any individual or group. The INCT Virtual Herbarium of Flora and Fungi aims to provide to society, the government and the scientific community an open infrastructure of publicly available data integrating information from the country’s herbarium collections and repatriating data on collections made on Brazilian soil deposited abroad.
to create an easily accessible database with reliable information on species names and their hierarchical classification. The database will be reviewed periodically to ensure high quality with valid classifications, revisions, and additions of newly described species. The ITIS includes documented taxonomic information of flora and fauna from both aquatic and terrestrial habitats.
The New York Flora Atlas is a source of information for the distribution of plants within the state, as well as information on plant habitats, associated ecological communities, and taxonomy. In addition, users can learn about the location of vouchered specimens and see images to get a better visual for each plant.

Species-ID is dedicated to the description and identification of life on earth. Identification means to have an unknown organism at hand and to correctly infer the scientific name for it. Species-ID offers a friendly platform for widespread collaborations. The founders of Species-ID believe in the power of sharing and collaborating. The charter of Species-ID aims to reduce the need to set up little boxes by providing a space able to support general as well as specific content and bring the community interested in species identification closer together.
