Database Collection
Description brief
databases containing documented, taxonomically harmonized species inventories of plants and animals reported from the world's protected areas. These databases provide access to information that is otherwise largely unavailable via the internet and provide a mechanism for protected areas and protected area systems to publish their species inventories when they would otherwise be unable to do so. 
Partnering with NBII, USGS, NPS, IUCN, and the Smithsonian Institute, this project provides standardized, documented, taxonomically harmonized species inventories of the world's protected areas. Plants and vertebrate animals are included. Inventories of invertebrate animals will be provided as the required "master species lists" (published nomenclators) and relevant biological inventory data become available.
